Very large Bovine jaw

Hello all i found this large fossil bovine jaw yesterday.
 It measures 380 mm long with at least 60 mm missing, and 150 mm tall with about 60 mm missing from the top, weighing 750 grams dry.
 I believe it to have been a young animal as its first and 4th teeth are not fully developed yet.
 The only damage i can see i believe like most of my other bones was caused by Geological pressure while its been buried.
