Owner of giant Perth steer named Knickers describes the beast's huge appetite

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

According to Pearson, the cow stands 194 centimetres tall and weighs about 1,400 kilograms, double the weight of an average dairy cow and about a 50 centimetres taller.

But owner Geoff Pearson of Lake Preston in the state's south-west said Knickers was not destined for the barbecue anytime soon.

Knickers, the Western Australian steer, is an enormous beast that is making worldwide headlines, standing at a whopping 194cm and weighing in at 1400kg.

The 7-year-old Holstein-Friesian is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 1.4 tonnes. Bulls usually stand over 180 centimeters tall and weigh over 2,200 pounds.

"We have a high turnover of cattle and he was lucky enough to stay behind".


"Knickers, is believed to be the tallest in the country and weighs about 1.4 tons local media reported

Knickers' massive 30kg-a-day diet is a mix of natural green pasture and rations of cereal grain, and though he has always been a big eater, Mr Pearson puts his size mostly down to genetics.

"He was unable to fit into the supply chain so Knickers lives on", he said.

He was too big for the usual processing, Pearson told ABC.Net.Au.

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

He is actually too big to be slaughtered.

For now, the title for Tallest Steer (living) belongs to a chianina ox named Bellino from Rome.
