This massive South Devon cow is more than twice the size of a normal beast.
The South Devon breed evolved from the red cattle of Normandy imported into Britain after 1066.
Experts at the South Devon Herd Society, which looks after the breed, were also amazed at the size.
MORE than 100 top South Devon heifers will be sold by video auc - tion today at the Three Counties Showground at Malvern near Worcester.
The heifers, all signet recorded and from Provisionally Free or At Risk Areas, have been consigned by 12 top South Devon breeders.
