Triplet Calves Born On SD Ranch

A Fort Pierre rancher says one of his cows gave birth to triplets this calving season.

Scott Scott, who lives about 20 miles south of Fort Pierre, says statistics indicate triplet calves result from one in every 700,000 births.

He says the multiple birth, to a Red Angus cow, occurred about a month ago. Scott says he saw two of the calves right away and found the third after returning from running an errand.

Scott says one of the calves died a few days after birth but that the other two are in good condition.

And after the triplet birth, Scott says another one of his cows had twins.

Did you notice something weird in this story? The first name and the last name are the same; a typo or the truth?
