I'm not saying Murry's mutt is half Jersey. It is unlikely anyone around there was using a Jersey bull on black cows. I just want to show the varieties of red and black that can come from a black Angus sire. Here was Daphne's first calf. That steer grew up and sold for almost$1000. Except for his spindlier legs he looked like a pure red Angus. Daphne's half Angus calves after that showed more and more dairy character and brought less and less, but I am showing the variety of coat colors. The blacker calves did blacken up like Murry says.
This one got darker but still showed a lot of reddishness.
This one blackened up but showed a tinge of red around the ears.
This heifer had a tinge of red too. I tried to make a milk cow out of her, but she had the Scottish (Angus) disposition.
This one born black as the ace of spades and stayed that way.
Another heifer calf with a tinge of red. Look how she turned out. She didn't make a milk cow either. I sold her for a beef brood cow across the road.
This heifer was sired by a really good looking black Angus bull. Turns out his mother was a Smokie. He was 1/4 Charolaise and look how that hooked up.
