$1 Million Dollar Cow
By Amanda Brodhagen, Farms.com
Canada is home to the world’s most prized cow, a Holstein cow named Missy. Missy is valued at $1 million dollars and while Missy does produce milk, that isn’t the main reason why she is dubbed the world’s most valuable cow.
The Alberta cow is gifted with good ‘jeans’, literally speaking, she has excellent genetics and it is her embryos that are highly sought after. Missy comes from a Holstein line in Prince Edward Island known for superior milk production. In fact, she produced 50 per cent more milk than the average dairy cow. Missy has walked the walk in a number of cattle shows including winning the titles of supreme champion at the Royal Winter Fair and the World Dairy Expo in 2011.
