    Ugh I saw this on television a few months ago on a programme called "Animal Farm" - a show that goes through what humans are doing to genetically modify animals and crops.

    It creeped the hell out of me, some reason. But not as much as something else I watched about a bodybuilder who transformed his body purely on raw eggs and frozen chicken fillet smoothies. Alas, he died one month following his target weight.

    Note: They are using cowscaping to improve the looks of their muscley cows just as guys on RJ use manscaping to improve the looks of their muscley bods.

    They just need to get that gene into the whitetail deer population, and I'll be all set.

    wish my parents would have used selective breeding! lol
    OK....maybe that was too far....but still!

    Noooooooo! Can you imagine what would happen to cars that hit them?

    As for the Belgian blues, selective breeding's been going on for thousands and thousands of years - that's how we ended up with all the different dog species we have today, for example. The only difference now is that we can take the sperm from one bull and use it to impregnate a cow without them having to have sex.

    Damn, them cows have some serious ghetto booty going on! And the artificial vagina scene was waaaay too much, now I unfortunately know the literal meaning of "hung like a bull"

    Just want to point out that this is not genetic manipulation. Selective breeding has been done for as long as people have kept animals. It's how we have all the dog breeds, docile cattle and chickens that can feed whole families. Corn and many other vegetable crops came around the same way. The gene that caused these cows to be so large was a natural mutation, and there are a handful of humans with a similar trait. Look up muscle baby.

    Where genetic manipulation will some day come in is when we people can start getting gene manipulating substances that can turn off that gene in us. From what I understand, the gene in those cows that's not working controls muscle degeneration, so their muscles don't break down when not being used. Imagine how helpful that could be to the elderly population. We may be able to save generations from becoming bedridden... and, once we have a superhuman elderly population, we may be able to use them to pull carts or till fields.

    Another possibility would be a drug that inhibits that gene's function, which could be selectively used in small dosages to manage muscle loss.

    Along the same lines, I recently learned that DNA testing is being used to verify pureblood / registered pedigree lines of all sorts of domestic animals.

    Double muscling is nothin' new in cattle...no lab required...they've been officially documented since the late 1800's.
    But any farm boy can tell ya, they're no good.
    The calves can't be born w/o extraordinary assistance.
    No problem in the lab.
    Big problem on the range.

    There are double muscled humans, too.
    Never seen one, but I think they'd be about as hot as the Incredible Hulk is conversational.
