Knickers is outstanding in his field. The big Holstein Friesian steer is unofficially Australia’s biggest bovine, at 194 cm tall and 1.4 tonnes of weight. In freedom units, that’s 6 feet 4 inches tall and a little over 3,000 pounds. And if you are wondering how many steaks that could translate to, save yourself the trouble.
Third generation Myalup cattle farmer Geoff Pearson said Knickers’ startling size had saved him a trip to the abattoir.
“It was too heavy. I wouldn’t be able to put it through a processing facility,”
“So I think it will just live happily ever after.”
