The cow is an American Gray Brahman, weighs over one tonne and was brought in from the United States through Thailand. Mr Nasrul says the cow was showcased to inform the public that they also can breed it commercially at home. It is customary for farmers in the region to rear animals in enclosures in the vicinity of their homes. People were amazed at the size and height of the cow. Many said they have only seen such an animal on television and this was the first time they have seen it live. It is possible to breed the cow in Malaysia because it is heat resistant.
