Connie, the Holstein, breaks a record for most milk produced over her entire life!
Connie of Nor-Bert Farms in Indiana has broken the record again for most lifetime milk produced by a registered Holstein.
She achieved this milk production record of 486,300 pounds through her latest completed lactation, surpassing the previous record-holder’s 478,200 pounds of lifetime milk, according to AgriMarketing. She is 14 years old and has calved again and is still adding to her lifetime milk production record!
To put this into perspective, her lifetime milk production equates to 56,547 gallons of milk, 603,168 scoops of ice cream, 904,744 cups of milk, 48,630 pounds of cheese, 22,939 pounds of butter, and enough cheese for 129,680 12-inch pizzas!
This total would also feed 10 people over 80 years if each of them had the daily requirement of 3 servings of milk each day. She would also provide the daily dairy requirements for 301,581 people for one day.
