Holy Cows! Iowa cow gives birth to triplets.


JACKSON COUNTY (KWWL) -- One local farmer is saying "Holy cows!" after he got a few more calves than he bargained for. A cow just outside Bellevue gave birth to three calves on Monday morning.

There are two males and one female, who's needed a little extra help eating.

Farm experts say the odds of triplet cows is one in 105,000

"Didn't really think about how rare it was until probably a day later. I was more concerned with working with them and getting the one going," Ron Sieverding, the cow's owner, said.

Sieverding says this isn't his first rodeo. Every year for the last three, he's had sets of twin cows.
