This is what I found on NYPost.com:
The world’s biggest cow will be saved because its 6-foot-4 frame is too big to fit into a slaughterhouse, a farmer revealed. Knickers, a 7-year-old Holstein Friesian, is more than twice the size of the rest of the herd in Myalup, Western Australia.
Holstein-Friesians are a dairy breed and normally weigh in at about 1,500 pounds and stand about 4-foot-1 tall. Even the breed’s bulls reach just 5-foot-10 and weigh 2,200 pounds.
Butchers say the giant would produce around 1,400 pounds of trimmed “saleable” beef – enough for 450 cuts of steak and 815 pounds of ground beef. The bovine behemoth stands head and shoulders above other farm animals and weighs in at an incredible 1.4 tons (3,083 lbs).
