The feat is said to equal the world record set by a cow in Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province, which gave birth to four calves on December 13, 2003 and got itself in the Guinness World Records.
"It is the first time I have seen so many calves born from a cow at one time," said Guo Xuefeng, the cow's owner, who is known as a skilled cow breeder in the county. Three of the newborn calves are female and they are all in good condition.
Animal experts said cows generally give birth to one calf and the probability of producing twins is only 2 percent to 4 percent. It is extremely rare that three calves are born at one time and the probability of quadruplets is much lower. (China Daily)
