Mókolla the Cow Sets New Record

This post dedicated to Mark Wadsworth:

Mókolla from the farm Kirkjulækur in Fljótshlíð, South Iceland, has broken the Icelandic record for the production of milk in the lifetime of a dairy cow, producing a total of 111,354 kilos in 14 years

But don’t get the idea that Mókolla is the only big gusher:

The old record belonged to Hrafnhetta from Hólmar in Austur-Landeyjar in the same region.

And Mókolla’s secret?

It is said to take after its grandmother, Snegla from Hjálmholt, the mother of Snarfari, Mókolla’s father, which turned 17 and milked a total of 100,736 kilos in its life.

    Is “kilos” short for kilolitres, i.e., measurement by volume, as I assume one would measure amounts of milk?

    Please forgive this dumb yank’s ignorance.

    I think they were measuring mass – interesting.
