    In cattle, hornless is dominant to horned, red coat color is incompletely dominant to white, where the heterzygote has a color called roan. What would the parental genotypes be in the following crosses? What woyld the genotypic and phenotypic ratios of the F1 be in the crosses?

    a. heterozygous hornless red bull X horned roan cow
