FARM VET SAM DELIVERS CALF TRIPLETS

Calf Triplets: What are the odds of that!

Oakhill Farm Vet Sam Millward had a bit of a surprise in his first month at Oakhill when he went to what he thought would be a ‘text book’ calving at a farm in Chipping.

Sam delivered twin calves at Coltercoates Farm in Chipping but on examination of the mother, felt another calf, which he subsequently safely delivered.

The chance of triplet calves is said to be around 700,000-1 – not something that Sam is likely to see again in his veterinary career.

All 3 calves and mother are doing well.
