    Technically a steer, but whatevs...

    No sale for Australia's enormous Knickers (who is, by the way, a cow)




    At some 1,400kg (220st) and 194cm (6ft 4in), the seven-year-old is believed to be the biggest steer in a country home to millions of cattle.

    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 Knickers avoided the abattoir.

    He will now live out the rest of his life on Lake Preston feedlot in Myalup, 136km (85 miles) south of Perth.

    "Knickers lives on," says Mr Pearson, who has been fielding calls from local journalists since the Australian public broadcaster drew attention to the enormous steer - a Holstein Friesian, but significantly taller than the average for that breed.

    He was first bought as a "coach" - a steer that leads other cattle - at the age of about 12 months. Steers are castrated males.

    "He was always a standout steer from the others, a bit bigger than the rest," says Mr Pearson. Although "some of his mates" were sent for slaughter at an early age, "he was still a standout so we thought let's leave him there, he's not hurting anyone".

    But after a few more rotations of cattle, the cattle farmers "realised he wasn't stopping growing". And now he's too big to sell.

    Poor, lonely, giant outcast cow. I hope he finds friends in retirement. He'd probably fit in with some elephants quite well...

    How do the other steers feel? Intimidated? Scared? Both?

    Yes! The avatar was Knickers when he was just a cuddly little moo-moo. A bit like those 'micro pigs' that actually grow up to be 800lb monsters. Which is still not as insane as this 3100lbs cow tho. If it fell over onto someone, I imagine would flatten them like a penny

    where does he take his vacations... moo-zealand?

    And where did the name come from?

    "When he was young, when we first got him, we had a Brahman steer [a breed of cattle] which was a friend of his," explains Mr Pearson. "So his name was bra... so we [had] bra and knickers.

    Looked at that first picture again. Just ww. I mean it's not like they will slaughter him for meat, too much of a freak to take down and likely not having equipment for a cow that size. Then, I wonder about mating and making more of them (not me personally, but another bovine), and I pity whomever is tasked with that. Still, science ought to save some DNA to see about future clones. Freak of nature, be a shame when age comes calling.
