After the unusual birth last Thursday, owner Feng Wenhong shared images of the animal, which is said to be affected by some sort of genetic mutation while still inside its mother’s uterus.
The six-year-old mother survived the difficult birth and previously produced four healthy calves, according to local reports.
‘All the other calves were normal. They brought our family about 6,000 yuan to 7,000 yuan (£680 to £790) in income,’ she said.
‘I didn’t notice the heads at first. I thought the calf’s head was just bigger than usual, but as I walked closer I realised it had two heads,’ she said, adding that both heads of the calf had the sucking reflex.
