China produces 6th recloned calf

Calf

Scientists in China say they have successfully produced another calf cloned from the cells of cloned cattle.

The project run jointly by the China Agriculture University in Beijing and the Shandong Kelong Animal Husbandry Co. Ltd. in Shandong Province has now produced six recloned calves that are still alive, Xinhua, the official government news agency, reported. All were produced from ear cells of cloned cows selected for their high mammary gland expression.

Two calves died soon after birth.
