Cow with twin calves

A team of AFSRC, West Virginia University and Virginia Tech scientists is developing practices to produce market-ready beef entirely on pasture and forage in the Appalachian Region. The present program is focused on sustainable forage-beef cattle systems, with emphasis on production and economic aspects. This beef cow is part of the research herd and she beat the odds by giving birth to twins. It is estimated that about 1 in 200 beef cattle births results in twins.
