This is a lot more relatives: Nickers is called the largest cow in the country.
After the first publications in the media, the owner of the animal, Jof Pearson, in a conversation with journalists, noted that in fact it was not a cow, but a neutered bull. According to him, since his childhood, Nickers had different sizes, and huge growth saved him from being sold at a slaughterhouse.

Pearson noted that in a few days a lot of journalists appealed to him with a request to tell about Nickers. “It got out of control. I did not expect everything to go so far. They call me every ten minutes from four in the morning, ”he added. According to him, now we are not talking about selling a cow.
