Wisconsin Cow Gets Extra Whiffs on the Farm

It's a bovine oddity in northern Wisconsin. Meet "Lucy" the two nosed calf.

When Mark Krombholz in Lincoln County took a closer look at his newest calf he had a double take.

While both noses seemed to be working fine- Mark called up his breeder to come check Lucy out.

Lucy was born last Friday (5-4) and Mark's still having a hard time believing a calf with two noses was born on his farm.

Breeder Scott Grund says these types of things aren't usually a part of genetics just a mutation that happens occasionally. But they do keep track of them.

In almost 30 years breeding cows Grund says he's only filled out about ten forms. So while mutations like Lucy's two noses are unusual, they do happen.

The two noses might not be all bad Lucy may have a more pampered future than her herd-mates. The family has decided to make Lucy a pet.
