Long Night for #9- 4/30/14

I knew yesterday that #9 was about to calve.  She had sequestered herself.  Sad scene in the morning was to find a rare set of twins- a white heifer and a red bull - apparently still born.  I have the extension department researching to see if our heavy diet of carrots might not be part of the problem.  Evidently diabetic mothers have large babies because of the extra sugar.  We also are seeing the first calf crop from an imported bull who is also suspect.
