Scientists Dr. Jonathan Hill and Dr. Mark Westhusin at Texas A&M University have successfully cloned what is believed to be the first calf cloned from an adult bull, which is also the oldest animal ever cloned. A 21-year-old Brahman from Ralph and Sandra Fisher of La Grange, Texas. The cloned calf â€˜Second Chanceâ€™ not only looks just like his father, but also has his fatherâ€™s exact DNA. Their research could have enormous implications in the beef cattle industry and in the future applications of cloning technology.
