Video of the huge Australian steer everyone is talking about

PIC Today Tonight

Towering over the rest of the herd at a farm in Western Australia, Knickers the Holstein Friesian is unofficially Australia's biggest steer.

When owner Geoff Pearson tried to put him up for auction last month, meat processors said they simply couldn't handle him - so Knickers avoided the abattoir. He's about seven years old now.

In this image made from video taken November 15, 2018, Knickers the steer, center back, is in paddock with cow herd in Lake Preston, Australia.

As it turns out, Knickers is no cash cow.

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

Knickers was only slightly shorter than Mr Pearson's son Tex, 17, who stands 204cm (6ft 7in), and is even taller when measuring to the top of the massive beast's head. The cow soon became too big to sell.

On Monday, he said Mexico should send them back to their home countries. "It's very safe ", he told reporters Monday. Border Patrol contacted paramedics and took her to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Mr Pearson said: "He's our favourite and one of our best assets, he's part of the furniture now".

Since Knickers won't be contributing to human society by becoming the next meal platter, Pearson and his family found another way to make the most of the steer's enormous stature in the farm.

"He's just getting on with his job, which is basically just eating and sleeping".

"He was too big to go into the export plant's chain", Pearson told the Australian outlet.

The world's largest steer is an ox named Bellino, who measured only about 3 inches taller than Knickers at a 2010 cattle show in Rome.
