A Limousin-cross heifer defied the odds to give birth to quad calves last year.
Three bulls and one heifer - out of a Simmental stock bull - were born on a farm in Co. Down on March 7th, 2018.
The farmer - John Fleming - said the breeding female was scanned with twins just three months before the miracle birth; the Limousin-cross delivered the calves without any assistance.
A vet from Downe Veterinary Clinic visited the farm shortly after their arrival; they returned to the farm recently and posted an image of the progeny in question.
