WA steer stands at almost 2 metres and weighs 1.4 tonnes

Standing at 6ft 4in tall and weighing in at 1.4 tonnes the Holstein Friesian steer is taller than the average Australian and weighs more than a Ford Fiesta making him a record breaker. Bellino stands 6 feet and 7 inches. It's OK; take your time.

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

Knickers' owner says he's Australia's biggest steer - standing at more than six feet three inches tall - and weighing in at almost a ton!

Although Knickers could be turned into 4,000 hamburger patties, owner Geoff Pearson says he has no plans to lead him to the slaughterhouse.

A Holstein-Friesian steer in western Australia stands head and shoulders above its competition ― literally.

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.

Knickers was originally purchased for A$400 (£226.7) as a 12 months old to act as a "coach" for other cattle.

Knickers is technically a steer - which is a castrated male bovine.

Instead, he'll live out his life on the farm, where he's become a natural leader among the other cows. If he wants to go for a walk, they follow, if he wants to sit down, they wait around for him to get up'.

Mr Pearson explained that Knickers" name came about because of his close friend "Bra', a Brahman steer.
