The bull was approximately 4.5kgs at birth - a little over one-tenth of what new-born calves typically weigh.

Lil' Bill - who is believed to be one of the smallest calves ever born - now weighs 30 pounds (just over 13.6 kgs), according to Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine

The bull was approximately 4.5kgs at birth - a little over one-tenth of what new-born calves typically weigh, according to Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

The college released an update on its Facebook page earlier this week: “Our tiny bull is now four-months-old and weighs 30 pounds. We are beginning to wean him and he is learning how to moo.”

Lil' Bill became a viral sensation after the college posted photos of the calf on its Facebook page, as reported by us here.

Born on October 27th, it is thought that he is the world’s smallest bull; he is currently under the care and supervision of experts at the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine (MSU-CVM) in Starkville, MS.
