Dwarf cow Rani, stands at 51 centimetres (20 inches) tall and weighs only 26 kilos.
The little cow at a farm near Dhaka has become a media sensation, with numbers of publications and television stations featuring it.
Thousands ignored COVID-19 lockdown to visit the world’s smallest cow, which has become a national spectacle in Bangladesh.
People across the country could be seen flocking in rickshaws to the farm. Its attracting a large number of visitors.
“This is the first time I’ve ever seen anything like that. “Never,” claimed Rina Begum, 30, who had come from a nearby town.
Rani (dwarf cow), according to her owners, is 10 centimetres shorter than Manikyam, a little bovine from Kerala who presently holds the Guinness World Record for the shortest cow.
M.A. Hasan Howlader, manager of Shikor Agro Farm, used a tape measure to demonstrate to dozens of observers how Rani dwarfed her nearest rival Manikyam.
Manikyam is a cow in the Indian state of Kerala that presently holds the world record.
Guinness Book Of World Records
Rani’s (dwarf cow) owners applied to the Guinness Book of World Records, saying it was the world’s smallest cow.
Manikyam, a Vechur breed, stood 61 centimetres tall in June 2014, according to Guinness World Records.
Guinness World Records pledged to make a decision within three months.
Rani (dwarf cow) is a Bhutti, or Bhutanese, cow whose flesh is highly valued in Bangladesh. Rani is dwarfed by the other Bhuttis on the farm. “We were not expecting such a high level of interest.
We did not anticipate that many would flee their homes due to the deterioration of the viral situation. But they’ve flocked here in droves,” the manager explained.
Cows That Hold World Records
Blosom, owned by Patricia Meads-Hanson (USA), is the tallest cow ever, measuring 190 cm (74.8 in) from the hoof to the withers on May 24, 2014, in Orangeville, Illinois, USA.
Blosom died in May 2015, at the age of 13 years old.
When Patty learned about Blosom’s new world record, she commented, “The odd thing about Blosom was how unaffected she seemed to be by all the attention that seemed to surround her.”
“Life was good as long as she received her oats and daily chin rubs and ear scratches.”
Big Bertha (1944–93), a Dremon owned by Jerome O’Leary of Blackwatersbridge, Co. Kerry, Republic of Ireland, was the oldest cow documented at 48 years and 9 months.
