    Sunday DH and I were out checking cows and we drove up on this. We had just been talking about coming up on a cow calving and she looked pretty suspicious. We drove over and she got up and the second calf had just finished coming out. My DH didn't notice the other calf right away. Yep it's a set of twins! We breed angus, and not sure how we ended up with this cow, but she's a good one.

    I thought it was cannibalism at first haha.
  10. I haven't been out in them since and didn't ask DH what they were as far as sex wise. They are both doing really good. Momma is loving both of them and has plenty of milk for both too. I will have to ask DH tonight when I get home what they are so I can share with you.

    I've heard if it's two bulls then one is usually sterile. I'm just glad they're both alive and healthy.
