Crawford Co. Cow Gives Birth to Triplets

Even a veteran veterinarian was taken aback by the rare occurrence.
CRAWFORD COUNTY, AR -- A rancher in Crawford County says she woke up and witnessed an overwhelming surprise, as her heifer delivered triplets.

Rancher Earlene Boone says she woke over the weekend to see her cow, Annie, about to go into labor. A little later, three little baby bulls were born.

The rare experience was a little overwhelming for the rancher.

"I think I've probably a had tear a few times," Boone says. "There's nothing like having new life, and when you have a new mom that is good, it makes our job easier."

Even a veteran veterinarian was taken aback by the rare occurrence.

"It's surprising. That's only the second one my in career, and I've been in practice about 20 years and that's only the second set that I've seen, and the first live set, so, that was a good surprise," veterinarian David Ford said.

Boone says she is still thinking about names for the calves, who will be introduced to the rest of the herd later this week.
