The odds of this feat happening is 105,000 to 1.

The Stockdale family at Carr House Farm could not believe their eyes when they woke on Saturday, July 18 to find one of their cows had given birth to three healthy Wagyu calves (two male, one female) completely unassisted during the night.

Chloe Stockdale said she doubted it that much she sat and played the calving cameras back just to double check.
