Is this the world’s biggest cow? World marvels at 6ft 4in tall beast that weighs more than a car

Knickers, a seven-year-old Holstein Friesian, is more than twice the size of the rest of his herd in Myalup, Western Australia.

The bovine behemoth stands head and shoulders above other farm beasts and weighs in at an incredible 1.4 tonnes (3,083lbs).

Owner, cattle farmer Geoff Pearson, told Perth Now that Knickers' size could even save his life, as he's too big for the local abattoir.

Holstein-Friesians are a dairy breed and normally weigh in at about 1,500 pounds and stand about 4ft 1oins tall.

Even the breed's bulls – which have not been castrated like steers – only reach just 5ft 10ins and weigh 2,200lbs.

Knickers cost his owners £225 and they bought him as a 'coach' to take charge of their Wagyu herd

Geoff  – whose beast is the biggest of its breed in Australia – said: "It was too heavy. I wouldn’t be able to put it through a processing facility. So I think it will just live happily ever after."

Black and white Knickers cost his owners £225 and they bought him as a "coach" to take charge of the herd.

"When he was young, when we first got him, we had a Brahman steer which was a friend of his," said Geoff.

"So his name was bra… so we (had) bra and knickers. We never thought he would turn into a big knickers."


Geoff – who has about 20,000 cattle – revealed the giant is also a big hit with the other cattle, who follow him around the paddocks in their hundreds.

Many of the cattle are Wagyu and are dark brown so mighty Knickers stands out even more in a pack because of his colour.

However, despite his giant size, the towering farm animal is amazingly not the tallest cow ever recorded.

In 2010, a Chianina ox named Bellino who measured at just over 6ft 7ins at a cattle show in Rome.
