Tail-less, GM Cow Produces Low-Allergy Milk
Dani Cooper, ABC Science
New Zealand researchers have genetically engineered a cow to produce milk free of the protein that causes allergies in children.
The milk could also prove to be healthier than normal milk as it contains higher levels of the protein casein, which would result in higher calcium levels and improved cheese yields from the milk.
