Rare triplet calves born in Northeast Iowa




Those aren't just good words needed to live a simple life; they're the names of rare triplet heifers born Friday night at Hansen's Dairy Farm in Hudson, Iowa.

According to the farm, the odds of having a cow survive triplets are about 1 in 400,000 births.

The calves weighed in at 85, 85 and 80 pounds, and they're all girls.

The cow who gave birth to the triplets goes by the name of 'Legend' who went into labor while groups were touring the farm.

Herd manager Blake Hansen told the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier he saw two of the calves during an ultrasound about 50 days into her gestation, but the third one was hiding.
