The two calves, weighing 35 kg and 45 kg, are result of the joint cattle-cloning project with somatic cells carried out by a local biotechnology company and the Institute of Zoology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The project, the largest of its kind in China, involves 30 additional cows which will soon give birth to cloned offspring.

Two other similar projects are being carried out in east China's Shandong province and Hebei province, North China.

Xinjiang's first cloned calf was stillborn as a result of difficult labour.
