By the end of November, Mokolla, part of the herd at Kirkjulaekur, a farm in Fljotshlid, South Iceland, had beaten the previous record-holder by 333 pounds, Iceland Review reported. Mokolla appears to be still in her milk-producing years, so her lead is likely to increase.
The South Iceland Agriculture Society on its website said Mokolla was born April 7, 1996, and began her career as a milk-producer in 1998. Her best year was 2008.
Mokolla's first calf arrived in 1998, and its most recent was born Feb. 8.
The Agricultural Society described Mokolla as a lucky cow with a good inheritance. Its paternal grandmother, Snegla, was also a notable milk producer.
Hrafnhetta, a cow on the farm Holmar in Austur-Landeyjar, South Iceland, was the previous record-holder.
