3000 pound cow too big to be turned into hamburger

LAKE PRESTON, Australia — The cows's name is Knickers. Not really a cow because it's a steer who is incredibly huge.

The black-and-white Holstein Friesian has gained international fame after photos were published of the 6-foot-4-inch steer standing tall above a herd of brown cattle in Western Australia state.

Owner Geoff Pearson said Knickers was too heavy to go to the slaughterhouse.

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