Bali Cows and Java Bulls Spawn New Calves

Scientists are celebrating after successfully cross-breeding the domesticated Bali cow with the wild Java banteng.

The indigenous Bali cow is genetically close to its wild counterparts, which while extinct in Bali itself still survive in several national parks in neighbouring Java. The breeding experiment was conducted at the Taman Safari conservation park south of Surabaya in East Java. The first success came last week with the birth of a 21 kilo calf. Scientists believe that an input of wild banteng blood will improve the quality of Bali cattle.
