Meet Knickers! He is an enormous cow. Much bigger than the thousands of other cattle that he feeds with in rural Western Australia.

Weighing in at 1,400kg and 194cm tall, the seven-year-old is believed to be the biggest steer in a country.

And his size has proved to be his saving grace. When owner Geoff Pearson tried to put him up for auction last month, meat processors said they simply couldn’t handle him.

So now, Knickers will now live out the rest of his life on Lake Preston feedlot in Myalup, 136km south of Perth.

“He was always a standout steer from the others, a bit bigger than the rest,” says Mr Pearson.

According to the record books, the tallest living steer is Bellino – who was 2.027m tall when he was measured in 2010 in Italy.

  1. Funny thing is, it probably would be too big for the slaughterhouse. May be the only reason he’s not steak yet.
