Heifer gives birth to three calves, making history in SVG
Three healthy calves were born to a heifer at Orange Hill recently, creating history in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
This rare occurrence took place on a farm owned by Edwin Ballantyne.
Dr Amelia Jack, Veterinary Officer with the Animal Health and Production Division within the Ministry of Agriculture said the heifer “defied the odds to give birth to three healthy calves and created history in St Vincent and the Grenadines,” NBC radio reported.
Dr Jack also noted that cows usually give birth to just one, maybe two calves.
The calves are two females and one male.
The Animal Health and Production Division of the Ministry of Agriculture said the healthy calves were not the result of artificial insemination.
Ballantyne, the owner of the cattle, expressed satisfaction with this rare but memorable moment, a post on the Facebook page of the Ministry of Agriculture said.
