I am interested in finding information about color inheritance traits in cattle. I know that black is a dominant gene when crossed with red. What about the color white. Does a Bw bull X Bw cow produce a ww calf about 25% of the time or will it produce something like gray? any help will be appreciated.

The American Gelbvieh Assn. has a good reference article on color. Check it out at:
