LAKE CHARLES - As a farmer, Matt Alexander says he loves bringing new animals to his farm. Last week he found himself at a cow auction. He ended up bidding on a calf born that morning with a rare condition. "The bid started at 50, nobody wanted her,” Alexander said. “The people I talked to said you're wasting your money on that, she's not even going to make it. Well 10 days later she's doing good and healthy.
