How Do You Milk Mice? Very Carefully

Mad scientists New Zealand researchers believe they have come up with a genetically engineered cow that produces less allergenic milk for human consumption. Two or three percent of infants have allergies to cow's milk. As seems to be the norm is these kinds of endeavors, they fiddled around with mice first (including milking them) in order to test the general concept, before moving onto easier-to-milk bovines. The first successful birth resulted in a female that was born without a tail - not a big confidence-booster, I would have to say.

Squeak, squeak.
