Most cattlemen would agree that single calves are the norm, with the odd set of twin calves making an appearance. Triplets are not normally ever seen in a lifetime. How about two sets of triplets on the same farm?
Oberle Farms is a purebred Charolais farm near Shaunavon in southwest Saskatchewan that had triplets within a week of each other in late January. All calves and cows are doing fine and with the odds being one in 100,000 or one to two per cent of cattle having triplets, maybe buying a lottery ticket isn’t such a bad idea for the Oberle family.
