I have had 2 sets so far. Same cows had twins last year too. This last set I had to pull because the first one was breach and she couldn't get them started.
Do you pull one off or leave both on the cow?

I'm planning on letting her raise both, she's a heck of a cow, I'm wishing for twin heifers.

This morning, 2nd timer and little bull calf
Image

Kama, 4th? calf.. big strong heifer
Image

Caddy, 10th calf, linebred bull with full sister getting an introduction
Image

Cenci, 6th calf.. Hera's full sister, born on the same day, same tag number even.. Momma has waaay more milk than she needs right now (you can see she only likes the right rear teat).. She has never liked me milking her, but I think she figured out it feels good.. I swear I milked 3-4 gallons out of her today.. maybe daughter will learn to count a little higher now
Image

Far cow, Sigma, 1st timer with a bull calf called Dumdum.. born 9 days early, one front leg the wrong way
Near cow, Prada, 5th calf.. I've never seen a calf get up and nurse as quickly, or with such vigor.. He nearly ate the cow.. I think he was nursing in 10 minutes.. He's got Marko's markings (Full sib mating)

Our first grey calf, supposedly exposed to Angus bulls my angus. When you buy young thin sale barn cows there's no telling what your really have.
The baldie calf had a leg back fairly hard pull, hopefully they'll bond.
