Wow I wonder what the odds are? Sounds like she does a good job with them.

Wow, impressive.. Perhaps she did notice there were perks to making two at a time (extra attention) :)

Probably wean in the next week or 2. Cow did pretty well again with her twins. They may be a little smaller than most the other calves but combined they'll weigh much more than any individual.

Nice! She'll probably be happy to get rid of them!
A cow I sold to a friend (for being sub par) had twins at his place this year.. I have a picture of her looking over the two of them looking SOO proud.
Skip to 6 months later, they're pestering her and she looks totally annoyed and just wants some peace! She used to be a shy cow, low in the pecking order.. Seems that having twins has fixed that for her, she's one of the boss cows now!

They look like pretty chunky calves, she has done a good job.
