Our British white cow was bred to our roan shorthorn bull. Just curious, what could be some outcomes?

Realistically, it could be solid white, solid red, or roan. It's really hard to say. My best guess is that it will be a roan or a solid white calf with red tip ears and maybe a few red pigments.

I've heard that British white color is really hard to breed out, so I lay my chips on white with the black nose , ears, socks, and a few black specks on the neck. Keep us posted.

Is there any British White semen etc in the US? White parks are a different deal-British Whites are Shorthorns-and some of the pictures I saw from England showed some real nice fronted but thick cattle. O0

This is a British White semen (Firtre Barti) on a Shorthorn cow here in south Brazil. I can suspect that your calf will show similar patern. Maybe more red on body and head. But the whie line on upper line, legs and places like on pic will appear surely.
The calf is deep red color, not black
