How would you like your Cow? Plump? Hornless? Producing lactose-reduced or insulin-enriched milk?A journey to the heart of a revolution in progress - the animal gene. 

An XXL-sized Belgian Cow, swollen with a specific gene in order to maximize its weight and muscle structure. American scientists are working on the Cow of the Future, able to generate “eco farts” in order to reduce global warming. Since when have we been manufacturing cows the same way we manufacture sneakers? Can we give them any colour, shape or characteristic we want? And to which end? Is it economic, environmental or medical?
