World’s largest cow will be saved from the chop after its 6ft 4in frame is too large to fit into abattoir, a farmer revealed. Knickers, a seven-year-old Holstein Friesian, is over double the size of the rest of the cows in Myalup, Western Australia.
Even the breed’s bulls only reach just 5ft 10ins and weigh 2,200lbs.
Butchers say the giant would produce around 1,400 lbs of trimmed “saleable” beef — sufficient for 450 cuts of beef and 370kg of mince. The bovine behemoth stands head and shoulders above other farm beasts and weighs in at an unbelievable 1.4 tonnes (3,083pounds ).
Owner Geoff Pearson — whose beast is the largest of its breed in Australia — stated: “It was too heavy. I wouldn’t be able to put it through a processing facility.
“So I think it will just live happily ever after. ” The beast cost owners £225 plus they bought him as a “trainer ” to take control of the herd. Knickers is technically a steer — that is a castrated male enhancement.
Geoff continued: “When he was young, when we first got himwe had another cow that was a friend of his. We never thought he would turn into a huge knickers. ”
Geoff Pearson has about 20,000 cattle.
