White + White = Black!
Normal genetics predict that white genetics are dominant. Normally when a white bull breeds a black cow the calf is white. One would expect even more to get a white offspring from a white bull and a white cow but here is living proof that recessive genes stay in the gene pool. Our most skittish cow dropped this little black heifer during an afternoon snow flurry in the farthest corner of the pasture. I found yesterday's little bull tucked down on a southern slope about a mile from mom who was getting dinner at the hay pile.
