cloning

Arab sheikhs first used artificial insemination in horses as early as the 14th century. Some pros are Increased nutritional value ● Quality assurance ● Higher-efficiency production ● Stronger disease resistance. It also accelerates the birth of the best possible stock, Cloning reproduces the strongest, healthiest animals, cloning can be used to protect endangered species. For example, in China, panda cells are kept on reserve as insurance against extinction.

Endangered Species Conservation

Reproductive and cloning technologies, like medicines and vaccines developed for use in livestock and poultry, can help save endangered mammals.s.For example, in 2001, researchers at University of Teramo, Italy, created a clone of a European mouflon, one of world’s smallest wild sheep. Thats just one of the many animals that have been cloned to protect the population.
