China: a giant farm for cloning domestic animals including companion animals

Next year, at 150km from Bei Jing in China, a giant "cloning farm" will be created, aiming to clone domestic animals including farm animals such as cows, but also police dogs and race horses. The goal would be to produce more than 1 million of cloned cows, to solve the problem of lack of farmlands in China. 

Cloning is currently prohibited in Europe, but despite the EU Parliament willing to stop imports of food product coming from cloned animals, it is still allowed for Member States to import such products after getting an authorisation. But EU legislation might change soon.
