Cow produces fourth set of twins

One cow at the Mike and Linda Howie ranch near White Owl, South Dakota, has gone above and beyond the call of duty as far as mother cows go. This great cow is 12 years old this year and in late April produced her fourth set of twin calves. In 2007 she had twin heifers, 2009 twin bulls, 2011 twin heifers, and in 2013, one of each. She has raised a calf (or two) every year since she was a two-year-old heifer and the Howies are naturally pretty proud of her.
