Massive cow named Knickers has been deemed ‘too large to eat’

While all that bulk makes it hard for Knickers to blend in, being heavier than a family sedan does have its advantages.

An enormous cow called "Knickers" has been saved by farmers in Australia, who say he is just too big to kill. "I wouldn't be able to put it through a processing facility", he said.

"So I think it will just live happily ever after", he added.

Knickers cost his owners £226 ($400), and they bought him as a "coach" to take charge of the herd. "We all know when Knickers in on the move".

"So his name was bra.so we (had) bra and knickers".

Knickers, a 7-year-old male Holstein-Friesian cow, clocks in at a whopping six feet three inches tall - just three inches shy of National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan - and weighs 3,086 pounds, earning him the unofficial title of largest steer in Australia.

But "Knickers" has been spared from the barbeque after it turned out he was too big to be processed in a normal abattoir.

Geoff - who has about 20,000 cattle - revealed the giant is also a big hit with the other cattle, who follow him around the paddocks in their hundreds.

Even the breed's bulls - which have not been castrated like steers - only reach just 5ft 10ins and weigh 2,200lbs.

He might be the largest steer in Australia.

Margaret River veterinarian Rupert Mothersole told ABC that he has never seen a cow as large as Knickers, but he stated it's not unusual for Holstein-Friesian to grow to that size.
