Australia's largest steer towers over herd at over 6ft tall

In case you haven't caught up, the seven-year-old Holstein Friesian is unofficially Australia's biggest steer, standing 194cm tall and weighing 1.4 tonnes.

Pearson later told the BBC that Knickers got his name as a result of his friendship with another cow named "Bra". "I think we just need to let him settle down for a little bit", he said.

Since he is no longer being sent to slaughter, Knickers has found a way to be useful around the farm helping to lead and coach other cattle.

Knickers has more going for him than just internet fame. He told the Guardian, "We don't know that ourselves".

But after a few more rotations of cattle, the cattle farmers "realised he wasn't stopping growing".

A popular fixture at his farm in rural Western Australia, Knickers stands tall among the other cattle and is thought to be the biggest steer in the country.

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

Shockingly, Knickers, a member of the dairy breed Holstein-Friesian, is not the biggest steer in the world.

As it turns out, Knickers is no cash cow.

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.

It's no bull. Pictures of a almost 2 metre tall Western Australian steer circulating the world's media are "dead-set dinkum".
