Case e, Have you made any unusual plans for caring for the twins? What kind of bag does this cow carry? I never had twins but knew they existed. I imagine it'd take a lot of TLC as one calf on mine keep mama dried up.

This year I have been feeding 14% creep twice a day and have noticed that my first year mothers (heifer's first calf) are self weaning at 5 months. This is great as it will surely reduce the stresses on the calves. They had nice bags for heifers too.

Nice pic. I think the little guys and gals are so cute.

I will give momma alot of extra feed and let them care for both if she claims them, at two or three months I will wean off just one and let the other go until I wean all the calves.

Sounds like a plan. I had a milk cow that was a super surrogate mother once. Bag was big enough for my family's needs and 2 calves.
