I was thinking of getting a belted Galloway heifer, and was wondering if I breed it to an Angus bull, is the belt dominant?

go to http://www.beltie.org
It says there the belt is a dominant trait, and hard to eliminate. I wonder about the double hair coat tho?

A friend of mine raised Belties for awhile, and she was always told if the bull wasn't a belted, the next generation could possibly lose the belt. She had quite a few with an 'incomplete" belt or no belt when bred with a non-Beltie bull.

Hi We have line here of belted galaway x friesian steers. All are black and have kept their full belt, I expect you would have similar results with an angus/galaway X.

I forgot to add some have picked up the double coat, and others are relatively smooth.
