Knickers is a 7 year old steer and as you can see he's enormous , so enormous that when his owner decided it was time he went to market nobody would buy him , luckily for Knickers meat processors said he was to big for them to handle so Enormous Knickers is now set to live out the rest of his days back on the farm.

"Knickers lives on," says Mr Pearson, who has been fielding calls from local journalists since the Australian public broadcaster drew attention to the enormous steer - a Holstein Friesian, but significantly taller than the average for that breed.

He was first bought as a "coach" - a steer that leads other cattle - at the age of about 12 months. Steers are castrated males. "He was always a standout steer from the others, a bit bigger than the rest," says Mr Pearson. Although "some of his mates" were sent for slaughter at an early age, "he was still a standout so we thought let's leave him there, he's not hurting anyone".

But after a few more rotations of cattle, the cattle farmers "realised he wasn't stopping growing". And now he's too big to sell.

Good on ya Knickers.

There's a farm in Spain that breeds arguably the best beef in the world. Letting them grow to almost full maturity. When cows get to 12 + years old, they can get big. But this bad boy, wow he is a big one.

If I was that farmer I'd feed it nothing but the best food and keep him natural as possible. Let him grow to full maturity and then (hate to say it) auction off cuts of meat to highest bidder, that's a literal cash cow for the rich and elite.
