While all that bulk makes it hard for Knickers to blend in, being heavier than a family sedan does have its advantages.
Owner Geoff Pearson, from Lake Preston in Western Australia's south-west, said Knickers' size is what saved him from the abattoir. I wouldn't be able to put it through a processing facility.
"Knickers", an enormous Holstein-Friesian, is making headlines after his owner declared him - unofficially - Australia's biggest steer.
Knickers was originally purchased for A$400 (£226.7) as a 12 months old to act as a "coach" for other cattle.
'We're going to find that the growth plates, which cause the bone plates to continue to grow, are going to stay open for much longer and that's going to give you a much more leggy, taller animal, ' he said.
"So his name was bra.so we (had) bra and knickers".

However, despite his giant size, Knickers is amazingly not the tallest cow ever recorded.
Even the breed's bulls - which have not been castrated like steers - only reach just 5ft 10ins and weigh 2,200lbs.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the world record for the largest bovine is 2267kg while the tallest steer in the record book measures in at just over two metres.
It's not quite the tallest living steer - that title goes to Bellino, an Italian cow that stands an insane 202.7 centimetres tall when measured in 2010.
