White bull calf #340415

Asked July 07, 2016, 2:11 PM EDT

Hello, I'm not sure who I would contact, I would greatly appreciate it if this message could be forwarded to the correct group. I have a bull calf that is sired by a low line angus bull and a Hereford momma, my question is because he is all white. I can include pictures in a response email, but I am curious how common this is or if anyone has seen this before? Thank you for your time

Good afternoon,

I would be curious to see photos. It would not be common for a purebred Angus and a purebred Hereford to throw a white calf.

I believe the low line is pure bred, but I know he isn't registered. As far as my hereford, I have no idea on her roots.

While the coloring is interesting given the parentage, it would not be impossible. You may have some recessive genetics that just happened to come forward in this calf.
Enjoy the variation in your pasture!
