Know that Huge Australian Cow? We have an Even BIGGER One Canada!

A Manitoba farm sanctuary is inviting people to meet a gentle giant after a photo of an Australian steer towering over other cows went viral.

 

Owner Karl Schoenrock said they took in Dozer the steer, who measured an inch taller than the Australian steer at six-foot-five inches tall Wednesday, from an owner seeking a better of quality of life for him last spring.

He was saved from a beef farm in Alberta, and brought to Manitoba

Apparently he’s just this calm gentle giant! "You could curl up and have a nap with him." Schoenrock said

Dozer currently shares a pasture with two other steers and a horse at Kismet Creek Farm, which takes animals in to “live out their natural lives” without being bred or sold.

At six,  Dozer is getting pretty old for an animal that size! He had to see a vet recently and is being treated for tendon issues in his legs.

People can visit the petting zoo on weekends or tour. Schoenrock said they collect an admission fee that goes toward the care of the animals.
