KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The owner says the other cows like to follow him around, maybe because he really stands out in the crowd.

Standing 194cm tall and weighing 1.4 tonnes, the seven-year-old Holstein Friesian is unofficially Australia's biggest steer.

Knickers is a 6-foot-4 steer (a neutered male usually raised for meat) from Australia who was spared from the "abattoir" or slaughterhouse because he was simply too big to eat.

"Knickers", is believed to be the tallest in the country and weighs about 1.4 tons, local media reported. (Note: Only females who have had at least one calf are referred to in cattle circles as "cows".) But his breed is also important, Bouwman said.

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 received his odd name due to his owner already owning a Brahman steer, named "Bra". That title, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, belongs to Bellino the bovine of Rome, Italy.

After a few years of growth, the animal had become too large to put through a processing facility, according to his owner, Geoff Pearson. "We never thought he would turn into a big knickers".

The steer is named "Knickers".

Mr Pearson said: "The other cattle look up to him, wherever he goes, they go".

Speaking to the Daily Mail Australia, he said: "He was always a standout who stood above the rest". Last Week Tonight writer Josh Gondelman sees Knickers as the hero we deserve at the moment.
