Australia’s Giant Knickers

Standing at 6’4” and weighing over 3,000 lbs, the seven-year-old Holstein steer known as Knickers has grown to large for the slaughter house. Originally acquired as a “coach” to lead other cattle to their end, Knickers’ owners noticed too late that the animal kept getting bigger and bigger.  The remarkable animal will be left to live out the rest of his life in a Perth, Australia feed lot.

  1. Mitchell Rupe had that gig in WA State claiming to be “too fat to hang”.
    Knickers had better not cop an attitude, beef is better before its old.

  2. Yeah, I’m not sure I’m buyin’ this…unless the other cattle around him are some pygmy variety. I could see him getting fat as hell, but I don’t think a bull’s bone structure has no limit to it’s size.

  3. So Knickers is a “coach” that leads other cattle to slaughter. He is the Bernie Sanders of the bovine world.

  6. My parents raised cattle and they had them shot and dressed out right on the grass. He’s not too big; someone either wants to keep him as a breeder or a marketer – or pet.
