Knickers the Giant Cow Is Getting Agitated at All This Worldwide Attention

Knickers the Giant Cow Is Getting Agitated at All This Worldwide Attention

Then meet Knickers, a monstrous steer that towers over all of his peers at his farm in Myalup, Australia.

But even when you consider these factors, Knickers is a freakishly big cow. The enormous steer in the state of Western Australia has avoided the abattoirs by being too big.

Knickers, a Holstein-Friesian steer, stands at more than 6 feet 3 inches tall.

In this image made from video taken November 15, 2018, Knickers the steer, center back, is in paddock with cow herd in Lake Preston, Australia. When his owner tried to sell him for meat at a cattle auction, he was rejected by the processor for being too big, the AP reported.




Mr Pearson said: "The other cattle look up to him, wherever he goes, they go". That's because Knickers is a steer.

Knickers' huge size would affect his life expectancy, but Mr Pearson thinks he has a few good years left and so far didn't need any special looking after as long as he had enough food and water. Bellino, a Chianina ox from Italy, still owns the world record for tallest living steer at a whopping six-foot-seven-inches tall, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Much of that is down to Knickers' pure animal magnetism - other cattle tend to follow him around the paddocks in their hundreds.

"When he was young, when we first got him, we had a Brahman steer [a breed of cattle] which was a friend of his", he said. Use #GeniusKitchen to let us know what you're sharing!
