WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE COW
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the most expensive cow in the world?
A cow from Australia recently made
news after she was sold for $70,000 from one farmer to another. However,
although this price tag certainly raised some eyebrows and had people toting
Maxine from Australia as the most expensive cow ever, she has some competition
and a few more dollars are needed before she can be crowned with that title.
The most expensive cow came from the United States
and she had a price tag of a whopping $1 million. Her name is Apple and she
costs such a princely sum not only because of her fabulous genes, but also for a
color that you don’t see on cows often – red. Apple was sold at an auction in
Litchfield, Connecticut where a small group of farmers got together to collect
the funds in order to be partial owner of this rare beauty. She has extremely
good genes that have potential for many more great litters that could bring the
owners a fortune. The day before Apple was sold, 5 of her calves were sold at
the same auction. Each was 5-months old and each was sold for $160,000.
One reason why Apple’s color is so enviable is
because it’s extremely rare. But another reason is because Apple can breed
either black and white cows, or red and white cows due to Apple’s color. Apple
has now gone to her new home in Wisconsin to continue to be a working cow. Her
main responsibilities are to produce milk and embryos.
