I will submit the weight it is what it is. We weigh every calf within the first 12 hours. I know some don’t they just give there best guess but we use a scale and report what it tells us. I still think that it is a twin but can’t prove it. So that brings up the question can DNA test determine if it was a twin? Ken Mike also said the hair on the calf was very short when he found it and mouth was formed a little odd like lips not quite developed. He said he is amazed it lived snd more amazed at how fast he is growingI'm sure Mike is a good cattleman Gizmon, just as long as he can read the scales right. Will you be recording the weight with Angus Society? I remember when I had my 18kg heifer it did not do the cows calving ease EBV's any good as it was regarded as an outlier. By the way my heifer went on to be my heaviest heifer at weaning.
The boss and I are still on our road trip but get daily reports from Mike…..today’s reportSounds like he is going good Gizmon. Did the cow look big in the belly and did you notice much difference after calving? Hope he continues to thrive. My smallish one and I'm embarissed to call it small now after hearing of yours has gone on to be one of my best cows although she was from one of my best cow families. I too did search every where for a twin but to no avail.
