Argentinian doctors claim they have cloned the world’s first cow capable of producing human breast milk.
 
Rosita was born on April 6 by Caesarian section.
 
She was designed by scientists using two human genes that help produce the proteins required to produce human milk.
 
It comes two days after a team of professors from China said they had also genetically modifed cows to produce breast milk.
 
Beijing predicts it could have the milk in shops within three years.
 
But Argentina’s team of scientists has no plans as yet to see their experiment hit supermarket shelves.
