Story highlights

Interestingly, Bheem also gets a massage from a kg of mustard oil.

A bull that consumes cashews and almonds in his diet might sound odd to some people. What is even more fascinating is that Bheem, a young bull, has participated in an annual cattle-sale festival with a selling price of $2 million (Rs 15 crore). 

Arvind Jangid, owner of this six-year-old bull said that Bheem weighs 1300 kgs and each month expenditure of Rs 100,000-125,000 is incurred for his nurture and diet. The diet of this giant bull includes one-kilogram ghee, almonds, cashews, half a kilogram butter, honey, and milk. Interestingly, Bheem also gets a massage from a kg of mustard oil. The owner also said that four people look after this bull.
