A DAIRY farm has welcomed a rare set of triplet calves - at odds of one in 105,000.

The Wagyu beef calves - a heifer and two bulls - were born on July18 at Carr House Farm, near Allerston, run by Chris Stockdale and his family.

Daughter Chloe said: “We could not believe our eyes when we woke to find one of our cows had given birth to three healthy Wagyu calves completely unassisted during the night.

“I had to play the calving cameras back just to double check. All three calves and their mum are all healthy and doing brilliantly.”

Farm owner Chris, who also runs the Vale of Pickering Caravan Park, said: “It is the first time our third generation 200 cow farm has welcomed triplets and it is usually a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“We immediately shared the news with our online following, with hundreds of people sharing their excitement.”

Chris added: “It brought some joyful and upbeat news in a time which has been full of uncertainty.”
