Know about Manikyam – the shortest cow in the world

Measuring 61.1 cm (24.07 in) from the hoof to the withers (and weighing a mere 40 kg), Manikyam is the Shortest cow on the planet - significantly shorter than the previous record holder Blaze (USA), who was 69.07 cm (2 ft 3.19 in) tall.

A team from Guinness World Records travelled to Kerala, India earlier this year to visit 6-year-old Manikyam in her hometown in which she is a local celebrity, for a photoshoot alongside her proud owner Akshay N V (India) and a regular-sized cow.

This diminutive bovine is a Vechur – a breed well known for producing dwarf cows with a maximum height of 90 cm.
