Schoenrock and his wife, Raelle, who run Kismet Creek Farm in Manitoba, made a decision to break out the tape to see how their bovine measured up after watching Knickers' story go viral on social media.
"Sure enough when he got out the tape, Dozer came in at 6' 5" - an inch taller than Knickers.
Instead of being divvied up into steaks and burgers, Knickers has been deemed to be too big for the slaughterhouse - and will live out its days in fields southwest of Perth, Australia.
Shoenrock told the news outlet: "We were kind of blown away".
Remember Knickers the giant cow, who hit headlines earlier this week for being an absolute unit? "Nothing super official, like Guinness official, but that's what we got", Karl Schoenrock told As It Happens host Carol Off.
The steer is named "Knickers". Rebecca Hanuschuk, a vegan, who had been living on the farm, "fell in love with him", Schoenrock said.
Dozer lives alongside a number of other animals, including horses and goats, at the sanctuary where they can live out their rest of their lives.
"He's just so massive".
According to his owners, Dozer is a "gentle giant" and enjoys a little scratch behind the ear.
So how did Knickers become the size of a Hyundai? 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. "If you stood next to him he'll just lay down next to you".
After moving him around several farms, Dozer eventually settled at Kismet Creek and have been there ever since.
Adding: "The other cattle look up to him, wherever he goes, they go. He's just that type of guy, that he's very, very calm".
