This is still the commonest colour, other than black, among Welsh cattle. It appears with monotonous regularity among herds up and the down the country including even in many pedigree ones. So far, there has been little interest in breeding red cattle, which breed true as the colour is recessive. There seems to be little danger of the colour disappearing in the near future. In Welsh cattle, the red is very bright, and quite different from the deep rich red of the Devon.
