Canadian Guys Says His Cow Is Even Bigger Than Knickers

Remember Knickers the giant cow, who hit headlines earlier this week for being an absolute unit? Then it turned out that Knickers wasn't actually a cow, but a steer - a neutered bull.

Well, now it turns out that as well as not being a cow, Knickers isn't even the biggest steer out there...

Step forward Dozer.

Dozer, who lives on Kismet Creek Farm in Manitoba, Canada, is a whopping 6ft 5in, a couple of inches taller than Knickers, who stands at 6ft 3in.

Owners Karl Schoenrock and his wife Raelle, told CBC that after seeing Knickers going viral, they wanted to see how big Dozer was and found that he was actually taller.

Shoenrock told the news outlet: "We were kind of blown away. Nothing super official, like Guinness official, but that's what we got.

"He wasn't on the flattest ground. I don't mind sharing the limelight."

Adding: "When I first saw him, I was giddy. He's just so massive. His head is so huge compared to anything I've ever seen before."

And just like his Aussie contemporary, Dozer is also too big to be slaughtered and was rescued from a beef farm. He now lives at Kismet Creek Farm, an animal sanctuary, where he'll spend the rest of his life.

According to his owners, Dozer is a 'gentle giant' and enjoys a little scratch behind the ear.

Meanwhile, Knickers' owner Geoff Pearson said that his massive steer will also be able to live out his days peacefully in western Australia.

Geoff reckons Knickers' genes are responsible for his incredible size.

Speaking to the Daily Mail Australia, Pearson said: "He was always a standout who stood above the rest. 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.


"Whenever you want to know where your cattle are, you just cast your eye over the paddock and you can't miss him."

Similar to Dozer, Geoff says that Knickers is also pretty chilled.

Adding: "The other cattle look up to him, wherever he goes, they go. If he wants to go for a walk, they follow, if he wants to sit down, they wait around for him to get up.

"It's quite daunting being up close to him, he's far bigger than any other steer I've had. But he's very placid, not aggressive, just inquisitive."
