"Oh my gosh. I gave birth to a cow."

Today's BackStory segment was certainly a talker:

The entire newsroom stopped to gawk. We got a mess o' tweets, the minute it ended. It's already made the blogs.

If you saw it, then you know why. If you didn't, well, settle in for some bovine birthin'!



UPDATE: I just found out that Deb Feyerick and her crew actually got to name the calf. Welcome to the world, Norma Jean!

    I grew up on a farm and haven't seen anything like this before. I love the wisecracks at the end, probably my favorite part.

    I have to agree with Bart Simpson [dont have a cow man] but really most people dont know that domestic cattle has to have help from humans to give birth .

    Seems like this cow may have been bred too young????? And bred to a large breed. I have been around dairies and usually this happens when errors are made by breeding??????????
