“We need to approach this story from a different angle,” said Aniek Bouwman, an expert in breeding and genetic modification at the University of Wagenigen (Netherlands).
First, it is important to understand, says Bouwman, that Knickers is a bull, and bulls are usually bigger. However, the real reason lies in its breed – the Holstein cow – which is a giant breed.
Bull Holstein bulls are usually over 1.83m tall, while other breeds – like those standing around the Knickers – are just under 1.4m tall. In other words, the Knickers is a big cow, but only if compared to normal cows. As for its species, any one can be considered The Rock.
Age is also an important factor. The Knickers is now 7 years old – quite tall compared to normally raised cows. The cows she took pictures with were only about 1 year old.
