Animal Biotechnology: All About Animal Cloning

Cloning is the most recent evolution of selective assisted breeding in animal husbandry. Cloning animals is a reliable way of reproducing superior livestock genetics and ensuring herds are maintained at the highest quality possible.

It’s important to remember that cloning does not manipulate the animal’s genetic make up nor change an animal’s DNA. It is simply another form of assisted reproduction. Cloning allows livestock breeders to create an exact genetic copy of an existing animal, essentially an identical twin. Clones are superior breeding animals used to produce healthier offspring.
