Genetically-Modified Cows Producing Low-Lactose Milk! What’s next?!

I literally cannot believe what I just read in an article posted on OrganicAuthority.com (see below)! Yikes! I think it’s time to go crawl under a rock now. Anyone care to join me?!

I try not to post too many “dooms day” articles…but this is the reality we live in, and things are getting pretty darn creepy out there! If we don’t stick up for natural foods, it seems it won’t be long before there aren’t any left!! Seriously, if you cannot digest lactose… then just don’t ingest it! It seems a lot simpler and more logical than this Frankenstein nonsense of “made-to-order” animals! It’s such a shame that the genius of these genetic modification scientists is not put to better use. Thoughts, anyone???

Oh, and here’s the article that got me so fired up today…

“Scientists at the Inner Mongolia Agricultural University of Life Sciences, Biological Manufacturing Key Laboratory in north China say that they have successfully bred the world’s first genetically modified calf able to produce low-lactose milk within two years.

Named “Lakes,” the calf was born on April 24th after the research team used extracted fetus fibroblasts taken from a Holstein cow who was 45 days pregnant. The team then genetically engineered the fetus by transplanting a lactose dissolution enzyme into the cell of the unborn calf. The fetus was then transplanted into the womb of a cow in July where it completed a successful 9-month gestation period. Two other fetuses in the experiment died. The enzyme, which can dissolve lactose….” (Click here to read entire article on OrganicAuthority.com)

“Attacked” By a Dairy Cow….and Lived to Tell!

Because we prefer to buy much of our food directly from farmers, we often visit the farms where our food is grown or raised. Below is footage of my attempt to “greet” a dairy cow at Kvam Family Farm (West Point, NE).  We tried to approach cow after cow, but every  one just politely rejected us and walked slowly in the opposite direction. So when this cow actually stayed put…and not only that, but lifted her head in my direction, I got a little “spooked.”  It’s embarrassing to look back at the video and to see how docile these creatures really are, but I just have a fear (as slightly irrational as it may be) of most any animal that weighs more than I do – horns or not!!
