Everybody, meet Danniel! The giant bovine weighing in at 2,300 pounds is thought to be the tallest and biggest cow in the world. His proud owners are from the Netherlands and have offered some interesting insight into what it’s actually like to look after a cow of Danniel’s size.

According to them, the massive cow eats about 100 pounds of hay, 15 pounds of grain, drinks 100 gallons of water, and produces 150 pounds of droppings. And this is just in a single day. As you can imagine, the costs of raising a cow like Danniel are pretty significant but his owners say it’s all worth it.
