Some say it's breeding tool; others fear harm to food

Barron - Bob Schauf knows cows. He breeds them and shows them, washes, clips and primps them like models poised to strut down a Paris runway.
Yet in all his years, Schauf never saw a cow quite like Blackrose, a gentle giant, a prize-winning Holstein who was "tall, strong, upstanding and beautifully shaped."
"She's one of those once-in-a-lifetime cows," Schauf says.
Make that twice in a lifetime.
Blackrose died in 2001. But her clones live on.
