The desire to produce farm animals with outstanding and useful characteristics is ancient one of the reasons that cloning is attractive is that it reduces the effort.
The fda action means that researchers are now free to using cloning methods to make copies of animals with desirable agricultural traits, such as high milk production or lean meat however, because cloning is still very expensive, it will likely take many years until food products from cloned animals actually appear in supermarkets.
