Animal Cloning For Agricultural Purposes
The agricultural application for cloning animals are breeding, quality, and disease control.
When farmers breed animals that exhibit traits that are to there liking such as high growth rate and increased milk production; it takes a long time. Now that we have cloning it makes the process faster and more precise which helps farmers increase their yields.
The quality of the animal is also improved through cloning. Before cloning, farmers used growth hormones but that was often left in product.
For example - "Transgenic cows exist that produce more milk or milk with less lactose or cholesterol, pigs and cattle that have more meat on them, and sheep that grow more wool."

Scientists are also trying to eliminate diseases in animals but are still researching a way o achieve this goal.
Pros And Cons Of Using The Biotechnology
Purpose of the biotechnology
Description of the biotechnology
Cloning is the creation of an animal with the same DNA as another animal.
I feel that this should be used because it will help improve our society.
It is expensive and hard to produce viable offspring
The animal also can often become highly sick and die
