Dairy cows across the world are mourning the loss of "Jocko", ranked as the world's third most-potent breeding bull, who has died of natural causes leaving behind as many as 400,000 offspring.

Jocko Besne had an industrious 17-year career donating some 1.7 million sperm straws that were used in France and abroad to keep alive the Prim'Holstein cattle strain, the main strain of black-and-white milking cow used in France.

"An international star from the Prim'Holstein breed, this bull rose to become an unquestionable reference and ranked third globally in terms of use," said Creavia, the farming cooperative that raised the broad-shouldered beast.

The organization said it believed he had could have spawned between 300,000 and 400,000 offspring.
