When you see this it’s not a good day. Twins that were both breached and another one that had a calf die in utero but I think I caught it in time. Next couple days will tell. The day before I walked by the puller and thought man I haven’t had to use that thing in a while. Oh well have to take the good with the bad. At least it was 70 degrees and dry. 9C05C287-12C9-4678-99EB-4BC0C7AFF69F.jpeg

We had a friend who had triplet Charolais calves today. All live, unassisted bull calves. Some make it and some don't. Or when you have livestock you will have dead stock too. Hope your twins make it.

Had to use our puller twice this last week or so. Both first calf heifers with big calves. So far they are both doing ok. The last one was a real hard pull and surprised that the calf made it thus far, and that the cow could get up afterwards. It’s all part of it sometimes it turns out and sometimes not.
