The researchers also suggest the cutting-edge tech will assist poorer breeders and those in remote regions by providing genetic material of elite animals enabling a process they dubbed “precision breeding”.

Professor Jon Oatley, a Washington State University reproductive biologist and lead author of the study, said: ”With this technology, we can get better dissemination of desirable traits and improve the efficiency of food production.

The expert believes this could make concerns over food security a thing of the past.

Professor Oatley said: ”If we can tackle this genetically, then that means less water, less feed and fewer antibiotics we have to put into the animals.”
