GENERAL
Cloning will encourage farmers to produce from a very small gene pool. This will have a very real potential of creating the modern equivalent of the potato blight that destroyed Ireland in that not so distance future. Our food supply needs to be exposed to the same laws of evolution that keep nature in balance. The idea of one strain of virus coming along and wiping out our entire cattle supply for example is unsettling to say the least.
