The Female Holstein, pictured above towering over her American owner Patty Meads-Hanson at a staggering height of 190 cm (74.8 in) – over 6ft tall - was first recognized as the tallest cow living after Guinness World Records visited Blosom and her owner at her home in Orangeville, Illinois, earlier this year.

Sadly Blosom passed away last month after sustaining an irreparable leg injury. Following further research, Guinness World Records can today confirm that Blosom is now recognized as the title holder for Tallest Cow ever.

On learning about beloved Blosom's latest record Patty said, "The funny thing about Blosom was how unaffected she was by all the attention that seemed to surround her. As long as she had her oats, and daily chin rubs and ear scratches, life was good."

In this poignant video, published for the first time below, the Guinness World Records crew captured the incredible animal in her open and lush green farmland, where she enjoyed 13 healthy and enjoyable years with her adoring owner.
