Enormous cow that weighs more than a car is saved from the slaughterhouse

A giant cow which stands more than 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs the same as a family car is so big it's been saved from the chop.

Knickers, a 7-year-old Holstein Friesian, is more than twice the size of the rest of the herd in Myalup, Western Australia.

The bovine behemoth stands head and shoulders above other farm beasts and weighs in at an incredible 1.4 tons (3,083lbs).

Owner Geoff Pearson told Perth Now that Knickers' size could even save its life, because Knickers is too big for the local abattoir.

"Knickers", is believed to be the tallest in the country and weighs about 1.4 tons, local media reported.

Butchers say the giant would produce around 1,400 lbs of trimmed 'saleable' beef  — enough for 450 cuts of steak and 815 lb of mince.

Holstein-Friesians are a dairy breed and normally weigh in at about 1,500 pounds and stand about 4 feet 8 inches tall.

Even the breed's bulls only reach just 5 feet, 10 inches and weigh 2,200 lbs.
