The black-and-white Holstein Friesian won social media fame and many proclamations of “Holy Cow!” after photo surfaced of the 6-foot-4-inch steer standing head and shoulders above a herd of brown cattle in Western Australia state.
Owner Geoff Pearson said Knickers was too heavy to go to the slaughterhouse.
“We have a high turnover of cattle, and he was lucky enough to stay behind,” Pearson said.
Australian media say Knickers is believed to be the tallest steer in the country and weighs about 1.4 tons.
