The journey of this three-headed calf into the world is truly unique! 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻
During the breeding season, it was just another day on Gordon Willner’s farm west of Davidson. The calf had been watched since its mother was pregnant, and it was clear on the day she was born that things had not gone as planned. Willner worriedly slipped his arm inside the cow and felt one, then two heads. He assumed they were twins.
Dr. Olaf Lipro, a major veterinarian at the University of Saskatchewan, arrived and discovered that it was a calf with two heads, not twins. He chose to perform an emer.gency C-section on the mother cow, which fortunately went smoothly!
Lipro performed surgery on the cow after administering a local anesthetic. He grabbed the second hind leg and hooked it to a calf chain before pulling hard, but the calf refused to move. They needed to act quickly because time was running out to get the calf out safely. Lipro yanked as hard as he could on the shackles. And he couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw it: a three-headed calf!
Everyone is perplexed and shocked by the calf’s birth! 😰😰❤️❤️
The tricephalic red angus cross calf was born at 2 a.m. It weighed 113 pounds and was completely healthy!
Davidson, March 25 — Guinness World Records and Ripley’s Believe It or Not visited Davidson last Monday to confirm the birth of the three-headed calf. It is without a doubt the most unique calf you will ever see!
