Holy cow, meet the latest baby cow triplets!

I read the sweetest news headline today, Holy cow! Rare heifer triplets born in Fredericton. This happened about a week ago in New Brunswick, Canada, and it’s quite an event to celebrate. The chance of a heifer cow getting triplets and have all of them survive at birth is only 1 in 8 million.

The babies were appropriately named Love, Faith and Hope. Look how cute they are!

I’m afraid they’ll end up as burger meat down the road, but maybe someone will have the heart to keep these three siblings together for a happy ending.

  1. These adorable little girls belong to my cousin, and I can assure you they won’t be hamburger :) Holsteins aren’t typically a meat cow.. they are bred for producing dairy and usually live out their full natural lives on the farm.
