Back page: Farmer saves calf using hot tub

ROSSVILLE, Ind. — A central Indiana farmer jumped into a hot tub with a shivering baby cow to save the calf’s life. Carroll County farmer Dean Gangwer tells WRTV-TV that he thinks one of his cows gave birth in the snow. He said he found the barely breathing newborn in a snowbank this week. The third-generation farmer says he decided the quickest way to warm up the calf, named Leroy, would be to use his hot tub. Gangwer says he “jumped in fully dressed and held Leroy up so he didn’t drown.” Gangwer then took the calf inside and wrapped him in electric blankets. Leroy is recovering and has started to nurse. Gangwer said Leroy is “done hot-tubbing” but “sunbathing is definitely in his future out in the grass.”
