TRIPLETS are making history as the new arrivals down on the farm.

The three calves have beaten all the odds and surprised the Lee family after 40 years of farming.

They have been so impressed with their new babies they are considering giving them pride of place on this year's Christmas cards.

The female triplets, two grey and white and one red and white, were bred from a black Hereford cow and a French Charloais bull just two weeks ago at Nick Lee's Hurst Farm in Ely.

Nick's father John said: "My neighbour’s cow had triplets, but I’ve never seen it in 40 years on this farm.

"We have about 100 cows and would perhaps get twins but we've never experienced this before.

"At the moment the mother is rearing them herself but in a few days we will put them in with some other cows and they will help out. That's the best way to work it.
