Inscription. Calves are born mid-May to early June. Cows give birth to twins 15 to 75 percent of the time and triplets occur about once in every 1,000 births.

Calves stand within minutes and begin eating vegetation a few days after birth.

Calves stay with their mothers for 12 months, at which time the mother aggressively chases her offspring away just before giving birth again.
