WELLINGTON, New Zealand - Scientists are breeding a herd of cows that produce lower-fat milk after the chance discovery of a natural gene mutation in one animal.



Milk from the cows is also high in health-boosting omega-3 fatty acids and makes butter that spreads as easily as margarine even when chilled, the New Zealand-based biotechnology company Vialactia said Monday.



Scientists discovered a cow, later named Marge by researchers, carrying the mutant gene in a dairy herd they were testing in 2001, Vialactia chief scientist Russell Snell said.

This is a problem when vegans rely mainly on health arguments to advance the cause.



Society doesn't change their diet to respond to health worries, they change the animal.

PS. There's a Google ad at the bottom of this page that says: "More Milk Plus. Naturally increase your breast milk production." Directed at the cows, perhaps?
