A Canadian cow has made the record book for most milk produced in a lifetime. The Ottawa Citizen reports the cow has produced more than 57,000 gallons. That's more than six times the average.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne, with the story of a true dairy queen. A Canadian cow has made the Guinness Book of World Records for most milk produced in a lifetime. The Ottawa Citizen reports the cow has produced over 57,000 gallons - more than six times the average - enough for every person in Ottawa to enjoy a glass. The cow's owner compared the record to that most sacred of Canadian honors. For us, he says, it's like winning the Stanley Cup. It's MORNING EDITION.
