Miracle of birth center puts on a show for a second year


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) --  It's day one of the Olmsted County Fair and one of the hottest attractions is the Miracle of birth Center.

There was already a calf born early Tuesday morning at 6:30 and there are plenty of other baby animals, and who doesn't love baby animals, and also adults ready to give birth at the fair.

only in its second year at the Olmsted County Fair

"I think they're really cute," said Macyn Hayft

The Miracle of birth Center is putting on a show and it is drawing huge crowds.

"The pigs chick eggs and duck eggs," said Hayft

This year the Miracle of Birth Center will feature the live births of Farm Animals, including calves, piglets, and baby chicks.

There are many volunteers from 4H, to vets, FFA members and more to answer any questions you may have about the animals on display.

And because the fair was such a huge hit last year, the hours have been extended to run from ten in the morning to nine at night.

And there is also something brand new this year.  People interested can text the word birth to 82942.  That will get you into the mobile club and you will be alerted if a birth is about to happen.  Also as another perk once the baby is born you will be able to text in name for that baby. The name with the most votes wins. Tuesday morning there were more than 200 votes to name the baby cow that would eventually be named Charlie
