Canadian Cow - Smurf - Pumps Out 1 Million Glasses of MilkA Canadian cow named Smurf has set a new world record for the most milk produced in a lifetime – a whopping 216,891 kilograms over 15 years.

“That’s the equivalent of more than 1 million glasses of milk,” Smurf’s owner Eric Patenaude, a sixth generation dairy farmer, said.

Guinness World Records has confirmed the record, which belonged to a cow in the US state of Michigan. The average dairy cow yields about 35,000kg/33,981 litres of milk in a lifetime, around 50 litres per day.

Smurf, a Holstein cow who lives on a farm near Vancouver, produces about the same daily amount but has lived three times longer than most dairy cows and is still producing milk ::::

It was her “longevity and consistency” that won her the prize, which also earned Smurf “Udder Accolades” from a local newspaper, Mr Patenaude said.Smurf’s father was a stud named Emperor from Wisconsin and her mother, Murphy, was also a “good milker”, said a herder at La Ferme Gillette in Embrun, Ontario.

Smurf turns 16 in September and is expecting her 11th calf in the coming weeks. So far she has only had one female offspring to continue the milk-making tradition.
