Meet the Italian man who is world's best 'cow-milker'

ANI  |  London 

An Italian man has recently been named the "world's best cow-milker," after he won the world cow-milking championship in northern Italy, it has been reported.

According to La Repubblica, Gianmario Ghirardi won the title after milking 8.7 litres of milk from his cow in two minutes, the Local reported.

The milker from Malonno fended off thousands of rivals to win the championship in Lenna, close to the Swiss border. In collecting his trophy the 30-year-old credited the victory to Mirka, the winning cow he has owned for seven years.

Ghirardi beat off competition from local Nicolo Quarteroni, who came in second place with 8.05 litres.

Both smashed the Guinness World Record held by German Gunther Wahl, who milked 2 litres from a cow in 2008. The record was then beaten in 2012 by Maurizio Paschetta, from Cuneo in northern Italy, who refused to compete in this year's event.
