Cow Has 2 Calves In Different Weeks

Larry and Terry Reeves have seen twin calves born on their Onstot Road ranch, but this winter they got a surprise. One of their cows, No. 93 to be specific, gave birth to a second calf - five days after the first one was born. Having twins arrive almost a week apart is quite uncommon, they said. "We've never had this situation before," said Larry, a lifelong cattle rancher. "It's pretty rare." On Jan. 22, a small, red bull weighing about 55 pounds was born to No. 93. The second calf, a normal-sized 85-pound red heifer, was born Jan. 27. "I thought it was crazy," Terry said, recalling the strange event/Kerri Sandaine, Lewiston Tribune. More here.
