Illinois: A team of American scientists has ‘developed’ a cow that gives 20 times more milk than a normal cow.
A team of animal scientists at the University of Illinois has developed a cow that could prove to be a game-changer for farmers in Tanzania. A cow that will give 20 times more milk than indigenous breeds.
The study, published in Animal Frontiers, reported that Holsteins and Jerseys were crossed with heat, drought and disease-resistant Gyrus breeds, which are hot ( Common in tropical) countries.
The result of five generations of cross, this cow is capable of producing 10 liters of milk per day under normal Tanzanian management, which is much higher than the average production of half a liter of indigenous cattle.
