    “Knickers,” an enormous Holstein-Friesian, is making headlines after his owner declared him — unofficially — Australia’s biggest steer.

    Not sure if this cow is GMO or just plain hybridized, however the Holsteins inadvertently became hybridized 100s of years ago, hence their A1/A1 milk production with the BCM7 protein, (as opposed to the preferred A2/A2 heritage dairy from Jerseys, Guernseys, etc.), and they constitute most of the commercial CAFO dairy population.

    Cattle are not genetically modified. However, both beef and dairy cattle are fed GMO grain, so there you are.

    I had no idea this was going on, and I find it deeply disturbing. Thanks for posting, Grulla.
    At least GE was not responsible for their size.

    "At least GE was not responsible for their size..." Perhaps not, but growth hormones may well have been involved???
