This is either one very small woman, or it is the biggest cow I've ever seen!

Blonde d'Aquitaine is a breed of beef cattle originating in south west of France. They were predominantly work animals until the end of the Second World War. This resulted in their muscle development, hardiness and docility. They were always hardy lean animals with light but strong bone structure.

I think "stier" is actually "steer" -- but if you're a Taurus in Germany, you're actually a "Steer".

Wow, that's a lot of beef.
