Abstract

Whether nature had outdone herself or had attempted a bovine monstrosity was the subject of much discussion in our laboratory two weeks ago when a calf with two fully developed heads was brought to us. It was a Hereford calf born of a cow that had previously delivered four normal calves. Mr. F. L. Hultquist, the owner, who lives near Swedesburg asserts that the calf was alive in the early part of delivery, but was in an abnormal position in the uterus. The use of a block and tackle during delivery was probably the cause of its death.
