GOT (LACTOSE FREE) MILK? THIS GENETICALLY ENGINEERED COW DOES: Scientists in New Zealand have genetically engineered a cow, Daisy, who produces lactose-free milk. They used a combination of cloning and RNA interference techniques to produce 57 cow embryos. Of the implanted embryos, only 4 pregnancies and one birth (Daisy) resulted. Daisy was born without a tail.
I don’t know about you, but I think I’d pass on drinking Daisy’s milk.
