'Smallest Cow In The World' Is Just 50cm Tall As A Fully Grown Adult

'Smallest Cow In The World' Is Just 50cm Tall As A Fully Grown Adult

A farmer in Bangladesh believes he's the owner of the shortest fully grown cow.

Rani stands at an adorable 50.8 centimetres tall and even looks smaller than some calves fresh out of the womb.

The 23-month-old cow is so small that she has to wear a cute little bell so her owners can find her quickly.

Since news of this tiny bovine broke, thousands of people have flocked to the farm near Dhaka in Bangladesh.


Because of her little legs, farm CEO Kazi Sufian said she won't get the chop.

"These breeds of cattle are pretty small and do not grow more than 80kg," Mr Sufian said. "She may gain a few more kilograms - max up to 30kg - according to our veterinary doctor.

"She's pretty healthy, she doesn't have any heath issues, and she's doing fantastic. Trust me, she can run faster than our rabbits!


"Considering her small size we have installed a ring bell on her neck so that we can locate her wherever she is hiding herself. Otherwise it's pretty difficult to locate her, so now she can roam around pretty freely."

He's gunning for Rani to be inducted into the Guinness World Record books as he says she measures 10cm shorter than the current title holder. Officials have been in touch to see whether they can get someone to confirm those details.

Rani isn't likely to grow any larger now that she has grown into an adult and her size is believed to be a result of genetic inbreeding.

Kazi has been overwhelmed by the support from people all over the country.


"Everybody's talking about our cattle. We are proud. It's a pretty interesting experience and we are enjoying it," he said. "She's very cute and we are planning to allow her to live as long as possible so more people can experience her.

"We are not allowing so many people - only one or two press people. We have taken all precautions so we don't spread coronavirus."

On the flip side, an Italian steer named Berlino is listed as the biggest who stands at a whopping 2.02 metres tall.
