In honor of Cow Appreciation Day, I have two calves for you.
Actually it would be four calves because the baby bovines are both conjoined twins.
The first conjoined calf comes from Honesdale.
The second conjoined calf comes to us from Montrose.
This calf was born on a farm near Montrose in September 1955.
According to the report, the calf was born on Mrs. Peterson’s Farm, which is two miles outside of Montrose, on September 23, 1955. Eleanor Peterson found that one of their Holstein cow’s gave birth to a set of twins. The calf was fine – one head. The other twin had two heads, four eyes, two mouths but only two ears and one brain. A veterinarian said that both calf have a good chance of making into maturity.
