Meet big Knickers, the steer too big for the slaughterhouse

Adjust Comment Print

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

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

Knickers, the mammoth Australian steer, was too large to be sold at an auction. He's literally too big to fit in the meat processors.

But despite the bovine's brawn, he doesn't bully the other cows or get his knickers in a twist, in fact, he is more of a gentle leader of the herd.

The comment came the same day Cohen pleaded guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation. Adult-film star Stormy Daniels was given US$130,000 and former Playboy model Karen McDougal was paid US$150,000.

The breed of cattle weighs almost a ton, and towers over the other cars at his farm.

Pearson says "Whenever he wants to get up and start walking, there's a trail of hundreds of cattle following him".

According to Pearson, he "wouldn't be able to put it through a processing facility, so I think it will just live happily ever after".

Knickers the steer, a hefty Holstein Friesian whose massive body poked out from above his other cattle friends, captured worldwide attention Tuesday with headlines from the world's most respected media organizations and memes from the Internet's sharpest minds. "Although Knickers is the tallest of his kind in his country, the actual largest steer in the world stands at an astonishing 6'7" and can be found in Italy. Mr Pearson said: "They all look up to him, obviously, and wherever Knickers moves, they move, and he's pretty much just the leader of the pack and coaching everybody where they need to be going".
