A Friesian bullock who measures a towering 6ft 6in at the shoulder is expected to claim the Guinness World Record for the UK's tallest bovine, the Times reports. Chard Chilli and his twin sister Jubilee were abandoned at Ferne Animal Sanctuary nine years ago, when they were just a few days old. Manager Naomi Clarke explained: “ …
..a lot of quarter pounders.
Why are the veggies looking at me like that?
Surely the world record for the UK's tallest bovine would be the UK record.
... this story contains a serious load of old bull!
I wonder if the animals were abandoned because they were the result of horrific genetic manipulation, and experimentation into Things Man Was Never Meant To Know? So hard to tell, these days...
Perhaps he has some old genes in him. The Aurochs was a breed of cattle often hunted in prehistory which was much larger than our current breeds...
Ill get my red coat and run for it.
That is proof that to stop meateaters VEGANs around the world are genetically engineering cattle to grow extra large and start eating humans.
Swedish cow terror!
"Chilli does not have a special diet and eats grass, with the occasional swede as a treat."
Better keep Sven away from him...
There's no hiding place
cud these puns get any worse? udderly terrible!
A two metre high Chilli beef. I'll have fries with that, please.
This pair need breeding off. Such a shame Friesians are lousy beef cattle. Maybe crossed with a decent meat breed...
What kind of record is that.
Surely it has to be a 'world' record to get in the guiness book of 'world' records.
Otherwise it's not much of record is it.
I reckon that I can break the world record for the most number of press-ups done by anyone in Steves family. Define your group small enough and you can hold any record you like.
Yes, I know it's a bull but..
Looks like they're trying to milk the publicity for all its worth....
Perhaps we KNOW it is the tallest in the UK, but the world record isn't known?
The next record...
...surely, it must follow, the UK record for the pat with the widest splat?
Watch out for Greenpeace and the other loony global warming fanatics wanting to slaughter the beast usng its no doubt excesive methane production as an excuse!
Paris, because even she knows it's bollocks.
So nothing to do with all the steroids they pump into the cattle these days.. oops! ...sorry wrong side of the pond!
I'll have ...
.. 10 litres of pepper sauce and a couple of cases of your finest claret. Bring the fillet first, then the sirloin.. then
What does a cow have to do to "deserve" an entry in the Guinness Book of Records?? Is this the same kind of "deserve" you hear so much about on X-Factor?
Cue the sad music;
"Chilli was abandoned as a calf, so devoted his life to eating up his grass every day. He wants to win this word in memory of the mother he hasn't seen in 8 years, where-ever she may be." <Insert shot of sad bovine eye shedding tear, Display vote telephone number>
I hear the NuLab spin doctors will be offering him a job - they have a need for a large amount of bullshit.
Mine's the teflon one.
I'm the tallest man
at this particular address. Can I get a record, too?
Mine's the red one.
Re: Deserve It
Um, I think you may be taking this a smidge seriously, Gav.
Do you need a cuddle?

Cow on a lead
The Times' picture has the cow with a harness around it's nose, with the keeper holding the lead.
Possibly a bit pointless? If that cow decided it was going, I doubt she could do much about it...
Chilli?? Why the name???
Presumably because he's a Friesian... Freezing... chilly.... get it....??
Re Good breeding
If you check out the definition of Bullock, you'll see that he (it?) will not be doing a lot of that
Re: Vegan winn - Beefing things up!
Lets hope he doesn't get together with the lot shown on this link.......
Re: Re: Deserve It
I need a cuddle. You free tonight?
Mines the one with the knife holes in the back, which is the result of Ms Bees reaction to this post.
> Paris, because even she knows it's bollocks.
That was close - one apostrophe away from a libel suit.
Paris, because she prefers a birthday suit.
Can you imagine the size of the steak off that???
I for one
welcome our new bovine overlords.
I do beleive that chilli is/was a bull. His sister is a cow.
/me hands Sarah Bee a tazer to defend herself from the El Reg Pervo-bot army following her after her "cuddle" comment.

Oh, taze be Sarah...
Yeah, mine's the one with "PBA Member" on the back
Re: RE:Deserve it
Taze be to God?
Make a lot of poop out of that .
the huge amounts of bullshit, what's the IT angle?
After that atrocious pun, I retract my previous statement.
The IT Angle
> the huge amounts of bullshit, what's the IT angle?
The it in bullshit possibly?
I think yesterdays times had an article about Estonia taxing farmers on methane emissions.
As said above, Fresians are not great beef cows, traditionally Dairy, he needs to breed with a good Hereford or something to get some nice Beef, as he is... he'll be sponsored by McDonalds or Cravendale before we know and they'll be milking him all they can....
UK's Biggest Cow
I think it was today's Dail Mail that pointed out that Cherie Blair already holds this record ...
milking him??? now that would be a record!!
Re: UK's Biggest Cow
Re: RE:Deserve it

It should have read "Taze me" - Damn this wonky Dell keyboard!
Grass skiing ??
