China claims it successfully cloned 3 ‘super cows.’ According to CBS News, Chinese scientists said they have successfully cloned three “super cow” calves that, once fully grown, are capable of producing 50% more milk than the average American cow.
The cloning experiment began last year at Northwest University of Agricultural and Forestry Science and Technology in Shaanxi, China. Scientists sampled tissue from cows across China and used what’s called the somatic cell nuclear transfer method to create embryos which were then placed inside surrogate cows.
The calves were born healthy last month in Lingwu City, according to the Global Times. The first calf born weighed 120 pounds and stood 2′ 6″ feet tall, the Global Times reported. The calves have the same shape and skin pattern as the cows they were bred from, the scientists told the state-owned media outlet. Good move or nah⁉️
