Outstanding in his field: Steer too big for abbatoir

An enormous steer called 'Knickers' has avoided the abattoirs by being too heavy. He will instead live out his days in a paddock

Geoff Pearson, Knickers' owner, said that the cow's size saved him from being slaughtered.

Knickers will live out his life in Pearson's fields in Lake Preston, southwest of Perth. "So his name was bra.so we [had] bra and knickers".

This monstrosity of a cow is Knickers, an Australian steer that's too big to be sold at an auction.

Pearson owns about 20,000 cattle.

When asked for possible reasons why Knickers became such an awe-inspiring absolute unit, Du said it could be any one of a range of conditions.

Standing at around 6 feet 4 inches and weighing over a ton, photos and videos show the seven-year-old Knickers towering over fellow members of the herd.

Knickers, the black and white steer, stands out from the herd.

His name is Knickers, and he now resides in WA with a herd of other cows he surprisingly hasn't eaten yet.

"We have a high turnover of cattle and he was lucky enough to stay behind", said Pearson. Instead, he helps out by leading other cattle around the place.

Much of that is down to Knickers' pure animal magnetism - other cattle tend to follow him around the paddocks in their hundreds.

While the massive steer stands out like a sore thumb amongst the crowd and might very well be Australia's largest steer, he isn't world's largest.

According to Guinness Book of World Records, the title of largest steer goes to Bellino, who measures in at 6-foot-7.
