Pearson says he bought Knickers for $400 to act as a steer, which serves the goal of leading other cattle.

Although Knickers could be turned into 4,000 hamburger patties, owner Geoff Pearson says he has no plans to lead him to the slaughterhouse. He's only seven-years-old, but weighs a whopping 1.4 tonnes, or as it's otherwise known, 50-thousand beef patties.

The seven-year-old behemoth named Knickers is believed to be the biggest in Australia and one of the tallest in the world, measuring 194cm (6ft 4in) to his shoulders and weighing more than 1,400kg (3,000lbs).

As reported by 7 News Central Queensland, he is nearly as tall as Niall Quinn with the former Sunderland and Man City striker measuring in at 6 foot 4.

Australia Huge Steer

As you can see, Knickers towers over the other cows at his farm in Myalup, Australia.

Mr Pearson said: "We have a high turnover of cattle, and he was lucky enough to stay behind".

So instead of a burger filling, Knickers acted like a moving landmark to help Pearson keep track of his herd.

"You'll put him in a paddock and all the other cattle seem to get attracted to him", Pearson said. If he wants to go for a walk, they follow, if he wants to sit down, they wait around for him to get up'.

"We all know when Knickers is on the move", he said.
