Horn­less cows

Country Smallholding - - Spring News -

Ge­neti­cists in Cal­i­for­nia are breed­ing horn­less cows which would be un­able to gore farm­ers or threaten dog walk­ers. In­stead they would sim­ply grow soft hair on the parts of their heads where hard mounds nor­mally emerge. Most dairy cows in the UK have to go through a painful ‘de­horn­ing’ process when they are calves.
