If only they had named this one Ferdinand, then we would have seen a childhood story come to life. For Fabio, the bull who has created a record by becoming the most expensive bull in the world – it is a life to look forward to. The new owner of Fabio will be able to recoup his investment in a few years by loaning him out to breed.
Fabio, whose full name is Dolcorsllwyn Fabio shares his temperament with Ferdinand. Fabio belongs to the pedigree Limousin and was expected to sell for £40,000 ($63,000) instead wound up breaking the world record for a stupendous price of $200,000.
The price is explained by the fact that two of the wealthiest breeders in the country wanted him. The 17 month old bull is expected to weigh 1.3 tonnes at his prime. Fabio currently weighs less then a ton, however is well on his way to the target with a diet that includes more than 40 lbs of cereal daily.
Of all the main beef breeds in this country, the Limousin has the ability to produce more saleable meat in the high price cuts.
