Scanned the infamous Ballyneety cow carrying triplet heifer calves.
On a farm visit I called to a client of mine who presented a portion of the dairy herd which had not been previously scanned pregnant. On an earlier visit I had scanned an infamous cow on this farm as starting with triplets. This same cow had 4 calves in her first parity, 5 calves in her 2nd parity and 2 calves in her 3rd parity. Tonight I scanned her pregnant 132 days carrying triplet heifers. This type of fecundity in a lactating dairy cow has not been previously reported in the literature.
