Cattle colors

Seems to be a lot of interest regarding the color of cattle and the cause or gene source for the colors, so for your reading pleasure may I suggest, as a starting point, a read of the following article (I have no idea if all that is written there is correct). Or go to Google.com and type in a phrase such as "cattle color" for a listing of various additional sources of information: <A HREF="http://www.uaex.edu/Other_Areas/publications/HTML/FSA-3067.asp" TARGET="_blank">www.uaex.edu/Other_Areas/publications/HTML/FSA-3067.asp</A>

Or you could try the section titled "Coloration, The Genetics Of" from the following site for a discussion of the many factors that affect color specifically related to Texas Longhorns but I'd imagine the concepts apply for all breeds -- this may help explain some of the unexpected color variations we see in non-longhorn crossbred cattle: <A HREF="http://www.asocl.com/factsindex.html" TARGET="_blank">www.asocl.com/factsindex.html</A>

Think now I will understand why some crossbreeds gives Black then their offsprings are Red or different color.

Like Red Brangus that are produce by mating Balck Angus Bulls and Grey Brahman cows, but do they will be Red if the mating is inverse?
