Nelore Cow

This breed originated in India. It was named after the Indian district of Nellore in Andhra Pradesh state.

The Nelore cow is named Viatina-19 FIV Mara and $4.3 million was paid for the magnificent Brazilian Nelore – making it the most expensive cow in the world. This record highlights the breed’s value and strengthens its reputation worldwide.

One-third of the ownership was sold at the auction for $1.44 million making its total a whopping $4.38 million. It is owned by Casa Branca Agropastoril, Agropecuária Napemo, and Nelore HRO. 

Nelore cows have bright white fur and bulbous hump just above their shoulders. They have resistance to hot temperature and this breed is known for being adaptable even in the most difficult environment due to its efficient metabolism. They are also resistant to several parasitic infections as their dense skin texture makes it hard for the insects to penetrate.

Females of this breed breeds easily as they have wider pelvic openings and larger birth canals compared to other breeds of cattles. Based on a 2018 report by the Guardian, Nelore bulls sperm costs $5,000 per 0.55-milliliter (0.03 ounces) dose. As for the meat, Nelore’s meat is “considered to be very tasty and high quality”. It is lean and tender and accordingly contains just enough fat.

Viatina-19 FIV Mara is around 61 months old or almost 5 years old and was sold in Sao Paulo, Brazil, last June 21, 2023.
