Enormous cattle sold to Emirates

Westmeath Farmer David Clarke who farms on the Hill of Uisneach near Mullingar has sold 4 of the worlds largest breed cattle to the United Emirates.



The  Chianina Breed is not alone one of the biggest breeds of cattle but is one of the oldest breeds of cattle in the world with records of them going back at least to 60AD. Believed to be of Italian origin. 



It is believed that the animals - 3 heifers and a bull were flown to Dubai in a deal worth tens of thousands of euros where they will be used to grow a herd in the Emirates.
