The record for world's biggest set of horns goes to a steer named lurch at a staggering 37.5 inches in circumference. That's a super cow!

Yes that's more than 3 feet around breaking the previous record of 31 inches by over half a foot, landing lurch in the guinness book of world records.

Lurch's owner Janice Wolfe of Mountain Home, Ark called in two veterinarians as witnesses for the official measurement.

The steer's horns stretched 7 feet from tip to tip and each weighed about 100 pounds.

Wolf took Lurch in when he was just 5 weeks old and says he was a late bloomer, and that she worried that he wouldn't
have any horns at all.

Lurch comes from a breed known as the cattle of kings because of their revered status among african tribes.
The ankole-watusi cattle are known for their huge horns, which average about 18 to 20 inches in circumference.

Lurch became quite the celebrity drawing in visitors from around the world and making appearances on national television including animal planet and live on three segments of the ellen degeneres show.

On may 22nd of 2010, Lurch died at Rocky Ridge animal reguge, where he and his loving owner Janice made their home.

Before he passed, Lurch's horns measured over 38 inches in circumference and almost 8 feet from tip to tip, he still holds the official record.
