    Not only is it the largest breed of cattle, it is considered one of the oldest as well. This breed of cattle originates from Chiana, Italy. The breed even dates back to the time of the Roman Empire, where many of these cattle were used for their meat and were also used  as part of their sculptures. Bulls generally stand at six feet and weigh up to 4,000 lbs. Cows on the other hand are a little bit smaller standing at five feet tall and weighing up to 2,400 pounds. The record for the heaviest bull was 3,836 pounds for a Chianina named Donetto, when he was exhibited at a show in 1955.
