Don’t Worry Knickers, You Won’t Be BBQd

 

A massive Australian cow named Knickers has been spared the slaughterhouse and the dinner table thanks to its sheer size.

 

Knickers lives on a farm in the town of Myalup in Western Australia and was recently saved from the barbecue because of its size, standing nearly two metres tall and weighing more than a car.

 

“He was too big to go into the export plant’s chain,” Geoff Pearson, the steer’s owner told reports.

 

To put it into perspective, the seven-year-old is almost as tall as NBA star Michael Jordan and weighs more than a Mini Cooper car at about 1,400 kilograms.

 

That’s double the weight of the average Holstein Friesian and half a metre taller — and could make more than 4,000 hamburgers.
