After the astonishing birth, Jimmy Barling announced that DNA testing would be conducted to confirm that all the calves were indeed born from the same mother. The fourth calf was a female, while the other three were male. The names “Eeny, Meeny, Miny, and Moo” were given to the adorable black calves by Rumsey-Barling’s granddaughter.
A Rare Occurrence
Local veterinarian Mike Baird described the birth as an “extremely rare” phenomenon. He explained that the chances of a single cow giving birth to four healthy calves are an astonishing 1 in 11.2 million. Baird, who knows the family well, believes that all four calves were produced by the same mother cow, rather than multiple cows in the vicinity. To ensure accuracy and contribute to scientific knowledge, thorough verification of this incredible event is necessary.
A Community Effort
When they noticed vultures circling above, Jimmy and Dora rushed to check on their cow. To their amazement, they had the privilege of witnessing the birth of the fourth calf. However, the mother cow is unable to care for all four calves by herself, so they rely on their helpful neighbors for assistance in feeding them.
