A cow known as 'James Bond' along with the 007 tag belonging to breeder Mat Rusli Ismail, 47, was crowned as the winner of the Terengganu-level 'Mr Lembu (Mr Cow) 2015' competition.

Mat Rusli from Kampung Wakaf Dua, Marang, who took home the Perodua Axia car grand prize, said he never thought that the two-year old local breed (KK breed or Kedah/Kelantan Breed), would bring him luck.

"Alhamdulillah (all praise be to Allah) I did not expect to win due to stiff competition from seven other contestants from other districts.

"I am taking care of over 70 cows and what makes 'James Bond' so special is it has a pair of red horns," he told reporters after contest held in conjunction with the state-level Farmers, Breeders and Fishermen's Day which was launched by Agriculture and Agro-Based Industries Minister Ahmad Shabery Cheek in Kemaman, today.

Mat Rusli, who has 13 years of experience in cattle breeding, said he was always seeking the advice of the Terengganu Veterinary Department to ensure the quality and health of his livestock.
