>It lets famers and ranchers make their most productive livestock faster to better produce >food that is healthy and safe
>Cloning animals reproduces the healthiest animals available
>Consumers benefit from it because meat and milk will be more consistent safe and healthy
>Cloning can be used to protect endangered species
>most of the food will be supplied from the offspring of clones, not the actual clone
>Cloning has a very high failure rate (.1% - 3% success rate)
>Cloned animals might get Large Offspring Syndrome (LOS). Animals with this disease can get breathing and blood flow problems. Scientists cannot reliably predict if the disease will happen
>Clones might look the same and have the same DNA sequences, but can have different Gene expression patterns.
>Some cloned animals can have sorter lifespans because of differences in their chromosomes
Did you know ?
The number of cloned animals in a barnyard is extremely small compared to the total livestock. The cloned animals are only used for breeding, not for food.
>July 5th ,1996 A sheep in Scotland was the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell.
>Over the years people from different countries are able to clone different types of animals
