Australian steer turns heads at 6 feet, 4 inches tall

He's got a good three inches over Knickers, standing at six feet, seven inches. "I think we just need to let him settle down for a little bit", he said.

The farmer says Knickers has been put to work since, leading and coaching other cattle.

When asked about Knickers' decidedly delicate name, Pearson told the publication it came about because of the steer's his close friend Bra, a Brahman steer.

Geoff Pearson reared Knickers on his property, and told ABC News because of his size they couldn't sell him for export, but he had become useful in others ways.

According to Pearson, the cow stands 194 centimetres tall and weighs about 1,400 kilograms, double the weight of an average dairy cow and about a 50 centimetres taller.

'He was always a standout who stood above the rest.

Much of that is down to Knickers' pure animal magnetism - other cattle tend to follow him around the paddocks in their hundreds. We kept him on because we thought he had potential to be a big steer but never imagined he'd grow to be this huge, ' he said.

Basking in the glory that is Knickers the cow, netizens have gone off the deep end, professing their love and general sense of shock over the giant steer.

According to Guinness Book of World Records, the title of largest steer goes to Bellino, who measures in at 6-foot-7.
