I sold a Lowline bull to someone who had red calf. Well, he had both the sire & the calf DNA tested to see if it carried the red gene or the wild gene. Bovigen did the testing. Anyway, the sire came back homozygous black ( ED ED)!! And even stranger, the red calf came back E+ ED !! I didn't think it was possible, but the calf is red! Below is a picture of the cow & the heifer calf with the black gene. Any comments about this development???
