somewhere between the colors of the cow and bull, probably somewhere in the middle, but maybe solid black. seriously.

What color of calves can I expect out of a black bull on a off white with black nose Char X cow?

Some black, some dark grey and light grey and pretty much any shade in between and including black and white.

Breeding a Char cow to a herford or red Limi will get a yellow colored calf. Around here people call them golden nuggets, they sell good.

Charolais carry a Diluter gene and you could have anything ranging from Black to purple

Is the bull homzygous black? If not, you could even get yellow calves from that cross.
