This year's calving season is bringing extra surprises for one rancher in the region. One of Richard Horffart's cows gave birth to twins nearly 3 weeks apart.

The Rugby rancher says he's never seen a cow give birth to calves this far apart. Hoffart discovered this calf on St. Patrick's Day a couple of hours after it had been born. The calf's mother had already given birth to another calf on February 27th.

Richard Hoffart – Cattle Farmer: “Took some mineral up there, and then I seen this calf, and I looked at it and thought "Jeez, it was just born". We started in '78 ranching and farming, and this is the first time I can recollect that it's happened to us.”

Hoffart's cows have given birth to 9 sets of twins so far this year.
