Every day, Farley feeds Danniel 100 pounds of hay and 15 pounds of grain. In that time period, he drinks 100 gallons of water and produces 150 pounds of droppings.

Farley is currently having Danniel measured in the hope of official verification from Guinness World Records that he’s the world’s tallest steer. The previous record holder was a female Holstein named Blosom, who was nearly six foot 3 inches tall. Sadly, she passed away in 2015 after suffering a horrible leg injury.
