Abstract

A VARIETY of technological developments in science and engineering will be necessary to support the growing world population. If, as is likely, the human population increases from five billion to ten billion during the next two generations agricultural production (and distribution) must be improved to ensure an adequate food supply. During the past 10 yr an unprecedented technology has been developed that will benefit animal agriculture and society. This technology is to treat dairy cows and growing meat animals with recombinantly derived GH. When administered to dairy cows, bovine GH (bGH) increases milk yield (typical response ranges from 15–20%; see 1, 2 for reviews) and improves productive efficiency (i.e. kilogram of milk produced per kilogram feed; responses are on the order of 10% improvement).
