Image explanation:
Two 19-week-old calves: the one on the left carries a genetic defect resulting in stunted growth, while the one on the right exhibits normal development. Thanks to comprehensive DNA analysis, researchers have succeeded in predicting the occurrence of this disease and determining the precise genetic cause – knowledge that could now help to prevent its propagation in cattle breeding.
