i was making my point of you can't have a black angus cow and have it white. genetics are just as good as horses and only certain type (as in beef vs dairy) cows work for 'working cow' horses. Plus breeding a dairy cow to a beef cow will be so sized wrong... huge muscled front with tiny little hips that are meant to show off the udder. Plus cross breeding cattle, as in Brahman x Angus = wont technically make it Brangus. It will be a F1 Brangus, but it takes 3/8 Brahman and 5/8 Angus. Red Angus is a mutated gene from the Black Angus to make them red. And technically Simmentals Maine Anjous technically aren't black, but you see plenty of them. That was because they bred angus to them to make them back and after I believe 85% of the main breed (as in Simmental or Maine Anjous), they are considered back to pure bred.
