A farming family from Co. Cork were greeted with a surprise birth last week, as one of their prize-winning cows gave birth to triplet calves.
The miracle birth occurred on the prize-winning dairy farm of Mike and Ann Kenny near Macroney, Kilworth, Co. Cork, as reported by Avondhupress.ie. This marked the first time a triplet birth has occurred on the family farm and the calves born were two bulls and a heifer.
All three calves are said to be fit and healthy. The odds of a cow having healthy triplets is estimated at over 105,000/1.
