Limousin cattle are both horned and polled depending on genetics. Horned tends to be more prevalent, but it is not uncommon to see French breeders that have polled Limousin cattle. Polled Limousin are most common in North America.

They can be either or. Traditional Limounsins were predominantly horned, but more or most of the modern or North American Limousins are polled due to safety concerns that horns pose for animals and people.

What breed of female cattle have horns?

Almost all breeds of cattle are born with buds, the ability to grow horns. The horns are almost always removed at a young age. Sometimes farmers allow the cattle to grow horns, depending on what breed they're raising. A few breeds have been developed in which the offspring are polled, that is, do not have the ability to grow horns. Holsteins are naturally horned, so their horns need to be trimmed or cut before their horns get too big, which is when they are a few months old if horn buds can be seen or felt. However, other cows can be born polled or hornless and do not need to have their horns trimmed. Horns is a recessive gene in cattle, so if a horned cow mates with a polled bull, the offspring will be polled. But mating horned with horned produces horned offspring, or hetero polled with hetero polled have a 25% chance of producing horned offspring. The naturally polled breeds of cattle include Angus, Red Angus, Brangus, Red Brangus and Galloway.

Is the tarentaise horned or polled?


If you mate a Hereford bull with horns to a female without horns if the female is homozygous for the no horns how many calves could be born without horns Why?

All the calves would be born without horns because the gene for no horns (polled) is dominant. The female being homozygous for no horns means she carries two copies of the gene for no horns, which would be passed on to all her offspring.
