Farm Fun Fact: Cow Gestation Same as Humans
Justice the cow.
Apr 16, 2020 (Westby, WI)

Spring is in the air on Westby Creamery dairy farms, and that means fluffy calves are starting to dot the Wisconsin countryside with their cuteness. A cow’s gestation period, much like a human’s, is nine months. Veterinarians can confirm a cow pregnancy at just 28 days and determine the gender of the calf at 60 days gestation.

Veterinarian Sandy Curran uses ultrasound technology to determine the gender of a cow fetus.
