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
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.
By now, livestock producers are becoming aware of soon-to-be-implemented changes in how feed grade antibiotics are used, in the form of expanded use of the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD). Producers using feed grade med
