Brahmin looking like a cross between a camel and a cow the Brahmin bull is a hump-backed cattle from India that was exported to the united states where cattle breeders bred these guys between1854 and 1926 brought men cows weighed between 1 000 and 1400 pounds but it’s the massive bulls that can weigh anywhere from an impressive sixteen hundred to twenty-two hundred pounds Brahmins have a humped back long drooping ears and loose skin and just like camels they can store both food and water in their weird-looking neck humps for weeks at a time that’s why farmers and ranchers in the southeastern u.s and the gulf states like to raise Brahmin cattle because they can stay in the heat and insects don’t bother them much.
cb bonari moving up a weight class we’ve got the Pakistani cb bonari yet another humpback bull breed that can grow up to 84 inches in air and weigh up to an insane 3 500 pounds these bulls easily surpass the Brahmins by an additional 1000 pounds and although they have a moderate hump they have far stronger necks horns and far wider chest its name is derived from the town of the bog which is found to the south of Seabee and Nari and Pakistan which is a river that flows through their breeding area each year the giant cattle are shown at the CB mela an annual cultural event in the area it is still being debated whether the Seabee is the biggest cattle breed in the world bulls of this breed have been known to compete with the mighty Chianina which is another massive breed we’ll be looking at in just a moment.
belgian blue and in comes the Belgian blue while not the heaviest bulls on today’s list they are without a doubt the most muscular you’d think farmers are pumping their cattle with steroids but in reality, the Belgian blue cattle develop freakishly huge muscles due to a naturally occurring gene mutation called double muscling as you can see these bodybuilder bulls have got well-defined backs and loins with strong looking legs and while not particularly huge all that heavy muscle can make bulls reach a weight of up to 2750 pounds believe it or not the females are subject to the same genetic conditions often leading to difficulties during pregnancy with calves often being delivered via c-section and even after the birth the calves often suffer from further defects such as in large tongues which makes it difficult for them to feed on their mother nonetheless the breed continues to thrive and grace us with its massive existence.

german Angus this german cattle breed makes for some pretty big bulls as well german Angus females may only reach an average of 1500 pounds but it’s the mighty male bulls that can often weigh twice as much the breed was developed in the 1950s when the Aberdeen Angus cattle were selectively crossed with different cow breeds native to Germany the goal was to obtain a larger sized breed with good temperament and no horns so that they could be used to produce beef with lower fat content.
