Coat Color Genetics in Galloway Cattle (article below) is an informal discussion by author/ researcher, Alan S. Bias. The Galloway breed carries bovine color genetics prevalent in most Bos taurus breeds; including black, wild red, true recessive red, agouti, brindle, roan, white park pattern, color sided phenotypes, riggit, and the dun dilution. Includes lots of color photographs illustrating phenotypes for most bovine coat color genetics. First published online December 2018.
