The Most Expensive Cow According to Guinnessis valued at 246 Million Pesos

BELIEVE IT OR NOT – The most expensive cow in the world is valued at $4.38 million, which is over PHP246 million.

This astronomical price tag belongs to a Nelore female cow named Viatina-19 FIV Mara, recognized by the Guinness World Records as the most expensive cow sold in an auction. Born in Nova Iguaçu de Goiás, Brazil, Viatina-19 FIV Mara is hailed as one of the best Nelore cows in history by Guinness. This 61-month-old cow was auctioned off in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on June 21, 2023, and is currently owned by three cow breeders in Brazil: Casa Branca Agropastoril, Agropecuaria Napemo, and Nelore HRO.

The Nelore breed is distinguished by its bright white fur and distinctive hump above the shoulders. Renowned for its lean and tender meat, Nelore cows are considered to be very tasty and high quality.

They are known for their adaptability to harsh environmental conditions, a trait that has contributed to their prominence in Brazil. The name “Nelore” is derived from the Nellore district in Andhra Pradesh, India, where the breed originated. Belonging to the scientific classification Bos indicus, a subspecies of humped cattle, Nelore cattle have their origins traced back to the Ongole cattle of India.

Their remarkable heat tolerance, attributed to their fur and unique sweat glands, enables them to thrive in harsh environments. Additionally, their efficient metabolism allows them to thrive on poor-quality forage, reducing the need for frequent feeding.

Nelore cattle can also survive for weeks without water due to their slow metabolism. The record-breaking sale of Viatina-19 FIV Mara has elevated the status of Nelore cattle breed worldwide. Beyond their monetary value, Nelore cows are prized for their resilience, adaptability, and high-quality meat, making them a valuable asset in the cattle industry.
