Mystery Solved: Twin Calves

Posted Wednesday, August 25, 2010, at 7:30 AM

Aug. 6, 1955 Southeast Missourian

Three times for twins. Mr. and Mrs. Grover Hitt, whose farm is on the Commerce-Charleston road, are shown here with their Durham cow and her third set of twin calves which they claim is somewhat of a record in the bovine world. The third set of twins, both heifer calves, makes 12 calves for the 11-year-old cow. (G.D. Fronabarger photo)

That's the same calf. Ol' Frony photoshopped this...

ah - but I wish he had taken pics of the ol' two-headed calf that was born south of Jackson. It lived a while, until it was struck by lightning, I think...

Fred Lynch has captured images for the Southeast Missourian since 1975, in that time moving from black-and-white to color, from film to digital and to video. The blog title is a nod to an earlier era of news photography and the 4x5 Speed Graphic: It's more important to be there for the shot than to worry about technical details.
