According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USA), India is the country with the largest number of cows worldwide. This country precisely protects cattle for being "sacred".

In the Asian country has 301.6 million cows. In India, cows are protected by law and no one dares to harass, mistreat let alone killing them for meat.

In second place is Brazil, with 219 million cows, followed by China (100.2 million), United States (91.8 million) and the bloc of the European Union (88.6 million).


Rounding out the top ten Argentina (51.99 million cows), Australia (26.15 million), Russia (18.66 million), Mexico (16.45 million) and Uruguay (12.06 million).
