many of the calves being excessively hairy, heat intolerant and poor milk production.

The scientific team knew about a gene which has a major role in lactation and is also known to create a hairy phenotype in humans when disrupted, and it was thought that this was probably the gene causing the problem LIC just had to sequence it.
