Thanks for your question. Well, if your heifer calves that was born twin to a bull she's one of the few that isn't a freemartin. Freemartin's, by definition, are those heifers born twin to a bull that are sterile.

I wouldn't expect anything out of the ordinary in terms of calving of a heifer. Be prepared for typical assistance if needed.
