A cavalcade of calves at North Dakota farm: 50 sets of twins
SHARON, N.D. -- Chris Johnson has seen double before during spring calving.

Yes, you're reading that correctly.
"It's 50 sets of twins. Fifty cows, 100 calves; all twins, no triplets. I know it's probably a little hard to believe," said Johnson, who ranches with his dad, Keith; uncle, Wayne; and brother, Jeremy.
