Yesterday we had our first set of twin calves, both are heifers, 78lbs & 88lbs respectfully, both are good and healthy and have been claimed by the mother. Watched again today for 15 minutes both calves ate, and both were energetic playing with nearby calves while mother kept an eye on both. She also would lick both when they came near. Now I am at the cross road hearing from both sides on what to do with the twins. 1 side says pull the smaller one now or soon so one doesn't fall behind and or effect 1 or both of their growths. Side number 2 says if she has claimed both, both calves are eating and the cows seem content to leave them on the cow together. Also have had offers to sell as a graft calf. What is that you all do in these situations?
