Scientists breed hornless calves after altering their father's DNA

Scientists breed hornless calves after altering their father's DNA

Scientists from the University of California, Davis, have created a hornless bull using genetic editing to stop farmers being gored. A genetically modified bull has fathered six hornless calves. This means bulls will now be spared having their horns removed. Neither the bull, nor the calves, have entered the food supply as per the US FDA guidance for genome-edited livestock.

What a load of self congratulatory shit from the scientific community once again. We've been breeding polled (hornless) cattle for centuries.
