Gargantuan cow becomes Internet sensation


Posted on Wednesday, 28 November, 2018 | Comment icon 14 comments
An absolutely enormous 1,400kg steer named 'Knickers' is believed to be the largest of its kind in Australia.
The distinctive black-and-white Holstein Friesian was reportedly saved from the slaughterhouse because it was too heavy and has since become something of an Internet celebrity.

"We have a high turnover of cattle, and he was lucky enough to stay behind," said Owner Geoff Pearson.

In recently released footage, the enormous bovine can be seen happily grazing in a field while surrounded by dozens of regular cows who seem unperturbed by their giant-sized counterpart.

Knickers will now live out the rest of his days in the fields around Lake Preston near Perth.

Wow...That looks photoshopped. I believe it, but it still looks photoshopped. That makes me think of an idea I had a long time ago about photos and video on the internet, though. In this day and age, someone could post 100% real UFO (or any bizarre/paranormal phenomena footage) and we'd all say it was photoshopped. End of story. Kind of like how we always complain about poor quality footage, if some strikingly good footage showed up, it'd be shot down immediately with the "that's CGI!" complaint.† Nothing is real anymore. If things ever were real, lol.

That's fairly good size for a Holstein steer. The last Holstein bull we sold weighed in at 2205 lb and he was affectingly know as "Bone Crusher" . The Holstein bull before that was much larger and at least a foot taller but I have no idea what he weighed when sold. Just so you know a Holstein bull's temperament is usually just plain old MEAN.

Cattle are like people and while normal is under 6' for a male human there are nonetheless exceptions like Shaqille O'Neil. I also suspect that he is more of a steer than a bull from his body shape.

I once paid 25 cents at a county fair in Indiana to see the world's largest cow. It was much taller than 6'3.† It was in a large tent and it was little scary to be next to something so big.† It was like an elephant without a trunk.

Simmental Bulls run that big on average and a really big one can top 1800 kg. They are big gentle giants. https://www.agriland.ie/farming-news/video-is-this-the-worlds-largest-bull-he-weighs-1887kg/
