Belgian Blue – Huge Genetically Modified Bulls
Due to genetic selection and experiments, the Belgian Blue is a humongous species of bulls packed with muscles and meat… How big are they? Have a look below.
The cause of these animals getting so big is small, yet very big genetic defect of a faulty myostatin gene, which is responsible for the gigantic size and double muscling.
This amazing super species of cattle is known to have more than 40% additional muscle mass. They gain weightamazingly fast, and produce high protein milk for their calf.
What is hidden from the general public, is the fact that these genetically altered bulls may be good for our benefit, BUT, for them, their uninhibited muscle growth presents a lot of health hazards for them. Calves can develop enlarged tongues and stiff legs which make it difficult for them to eat and move, leading to death.
