Success! Completing Order...
Cattle can be gene-edited to have what’s called a “slick” coat, which makes them resistant to heat and gives them the ability to efficiently function in these kinds of extreme weather conditions, says Good Day BIO.
"...breeding of animals that could tolerate poor conditions better without apparently having adverse health impacts."
...'Minnesota-based Acceligen is using advances in science to refine and accelerate the process of genetic improvement, enabling farmers to more humanely raise healthier and more resilient livestock while reducing the environmental impact of their work.'
The gene, called KISS1, is normally expressed in the hypothalamus of the pig’s brain during puberty, triggering the production of hormones from the pituitary gland which propel puberty forward.
Meet two extraordinary veterinarians, who not only share their love of work, but also of each other as they pursue improving animal welfare. It's the cutest story ever!

Dr. Tad Sonstegard, CEO of Acceligen, talks Precision Breeding technology and how gene-editing can reboot genetic progress in sub saharan Africa.
There is a disparity between milk yield in sub saharan Africa and the US. In comparison, African dairy cattle produce as little as 1/6-1/8 the amount of milk.
