March 4th,2012 Cow Litter

The odds of a triplet birth are one in 105000...this is my vet's cow

Attachment 37634

Aw, li'l baby cows!



Sheldonrs  Sunday Mar 4 02:01 AM

If you plow your cow, you rattle your cattle.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Mar 4 02:41 AM

Thanks Nirvana, I've never seen triplets. Were they light?



Griff  Sunday Mar 4 08:32 AM

I've never seen trips before, very cool.



Clodfobble  Sunday Mar 4 09:46 AM

This is what happens when cows start abusing in vitro technology!



GunMaster357  Sunday Mar 4 09:55 AM

Your vet is a very strange man if he has three calves.



Griff  Sunday Mar 4 12:19 PM

His wife is most fortunate though.



wolf  Sunday Mar 4 04:54 PM

How are they going to keep the little darlings fed, bottle or wet nurse cow? I recall from somewhere (probably All Creatures Great and Small) that it's difficult getting twin baby moocows enough milk to sustain them. Bessie does not do the one per teat kind of nursing.



Nirvana  Sunday Mar 4 06:05 PM

@ Bruce I have asked your question waiting for an answer.
@Wolf dairy calves are bottle or pail fed after their initial drink of colostrum.

One of my Dad's sheep had triplet lambs last season. They weren't lucky enough to be born in a barn though. lol In fact, they were born in the paddock during one of our fairly common downpours. Poor things. They all did ok though. A ewe that lost her baby ended up fostering the trips and helping the mother raise them. Strange but true.



HungLikeJesus  Sunday Mar 4 07:05 PM

Is it true that little lambs eat ivy?



wolf  Sunday Mar 4 07:21 PM

A kid'll eat ivy too, wouldn't you?



Nirvana  Sunday Mar 4 07:41 PM

Triplets are pretty common in sheep, my neighbor has had 3 sets so far this year.



sandypossum  Sunday Mar 4 07:49 PM

Our little lambs eat ivy. And wisteria. And jasmine. And wormwood. And anything else they can reach through the mesh, or by zipping through the gate when you open it. And I just discovered they eat eucalyptus leaves too. (Branch fell off one of the trees into their paddock.

Now I'm getting dozy. Dozy dotes.



Aliantha  Sunday Mar 4 08:21 PM

Well it was a bit of a surprise for Dad. He only keeps enough to slaughter for his own table, so only a dozen or so ewes.



infinite monkey  Sunday Mar 4 09:45 PM

Mail one to me and I'll raise it here. How big could it get?

So cute and awesome. Thanks, 'vana.



ZenGum  Sunday Mar 4 11:24 PM

If cow litter works on the same principle as kitty litter, we're gonna need a bigger scooper.



Aliantha  Sunday Mar 4 11:29 PM

and a bigger box.



wolf  Wednesday Mar 7 04:36 PM

mmmm. Veal. Scallopini. Marsala. Parmigiana. Saltimboca.

Oh, yeah.
