A baby dairy cow at the Prospect Park Zoo is the first to be born there.

Zoo officials say the newborn calf weighed in at a healthy 84 pounds when he was born two weeks ago. He could grow to more than 1,000 pounds as an adult.

Prospect Park Zoo now has two cows. The new calf’s mother is a Shornhorn milking cow and his father is a Randall Lineback bull.
