6’4″ Cow Will Live Happily Ever After


Knickers, a seven-year-old Holstein-Friesians cow is getting a new lease on life, after growing to be more than twice the size of the rest of his herd.

Holstein-Friesians are usually a little more than four feet tall, but he stands six-foot-four — the largest of his kind in the world.

The Sun reports the massive mooer could produce around 1,400 pounds of beef — enough for 450 cuts of steak and 815 pounds of ground beef. However, the 3,083 pound cow is too big to become beef, according to owner Geoff Pearson. “It was too heavy. I wouldn’t be able to put it through a processing facility. So I think it will just live happily ever after,” he joked.
