Meet the giant cow that is almost as tall as Michael Jordan and weighs more than a car

He lives on a farm in Australia and is believed to be the biggest bull in Australia. He is a steer, and weighs in at a hefty 3.086 pounds and is 6 ft 4 in tall.

This steer has become a viral sensation after pictures were posted of him towering above the other cattle on a farm south of Perth.

Thanks to his huge presence nobody else wants to buy him so he will get to live out his days in his home.

 

 

This seven-year-old cow, known affectionately to its owners as Knickers (one of the U.K./Australian words for panties), is a  Holstein-Friesian, a dairy breed known for being quite tall. But this one seems to have broken the mold.

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,” his owner Geoff Pearson said, according to the Epoch Times adding: “some of his mates” were slaughtered at an early age. But Knickers “was still a standout so we thought let’s leave him there, he’s not hurting anyone.”

Geoff then explained the animal’s comical name: “When he was young, when we first got him, we had a Brahman steer [a breed of cattle] which was a friend of his,” he said. “So his name was bra… so we [had] bra and knickers.”

He added: “We never thought he would turn into a big knickers.”

The Guinness World Records says the world’s tallest living steer is an Italian Chianina ox named Bellino which stands at 6 ft 5 in tall.
