Genomic editing technology increasingly shows potential for improving disease resistance within livestock populations, as researchers in China report success introducing resistance to the CSFV in pigs.
As one of the researchers who helped developed pigs resistant to the Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) virus said, "At the very least, the development of PRRS-resistant pigs is a new tool for im
Producers should provide high risk baby calves (born to thin first calf heifers or calves that endured a difficult birth) at least 2 quarts of fresh or thawed colostrum within the first 6 hours of life and another 2 qua
Genomic editing technology such as CRISPR/Cas9 offers tremendous potential for accelerating genetic progress, but a new ruling from the European Court of Justice (ECJ) appears likely to stifle research and development.
The Under Secretary of Agriculture for Marketing and Regulatory programs told members of the U.S. Animal Health Association on of his goals is to advance animal disease traceability. And he’s in good company,
