How to append a line in file /boot/loader.conf ?

I tried doing this but I got permission denied, though I see proper permission in the file,
I tried giving 777 to file, still couldn't get the line appended to the file, is there any other
permission do I need to check?


bash-3.2$ sudo echo 'kern.ipc.maxpipekva="67108864"' >> /boot/loader.conf
bash: /boot/loader.conf: Permission denied
bash-3.2$ ls -l /boot/loader.conf
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  1676 Apr  2 12:38 /boot/loader.conf

sudo sh -c "echo 'rn.ipc.maxpipekva=\"67108864\"' >> /boot/loader.conf"

Wouldn't it be easier to just su to root, and then run this echo command?
