Lineback2If white cattle with coloured ears are mated with black or red animals, and the resulting progeny are subsequently also mated to black or red animals, line-backed calves will be thrown in one or two generations.  The line-back pattern is the dark extreme of the colour gradient of which the white animal with coloured ears is the light extreme.  In North Wales, this relationship is accentuated by the tendency to blue colouring in both white and line-backed Welsh cattle.
