I have a bet riding on this so I would love it if anyone could help! My friend Charlie and I have a bet going because he claims that cows can have blue coloring. I have never seen or heard of this and I live in a pretty rural area. Are there really blue cows?

> Murray grey calves are a pearl grey when born I had one that seemed to have just a touch of a bluish cast to it but it might have been the light that morning, he lightened up to almost white .

This color can be created by breeding many common breeds. The color blue is a roan type gene, where the colors of black and white are mixed 50-50.

We produce Blue cattle using Highland -angus-Belgian Blue cattle... we call this a Diarmid cow and coming from Blue Ox Farms, its a fitting color don't you think?

there is no such thing as a true blue cow. there is though, a blue roan colour. the same rule applies in horses. this is when there is a cross of colours and none of these colours are dominant over the other. this is called co-dominance. when this happens we get 50% of the hairs black/grey and the others are a diff colour. and when closely arranged a blue roan colour is observed. there are many breeds which can produce a blue roan but the most common are Belgian Blues! Shorthorns, and many crosses.
