Inheritance of the guinea trait in descendants of Florida native cattle



Inheritance of the guinea trait in descendants of Florida native cattle



Jour Heredity 51(1): 32-34



The inheritance of a trait known as guinea among descendants of Florida native cattle has been investigated. The typical guinea is a compact, short-legged individual which attains approximately two-thirds the size of normal individuals of similar breeding. A typical Dexter-type bulldog lethal occurred among the progeny of 5 guinea X guinea matings. The occurrence of this bulldog lethal along with phenotypic ratios resulting from matings involving guinea cattle in private herds indicates that the guinea phenotype is due to the presence of a semi-dominant "bulldog" lethal gene. The striking resemblance of the bulldog produced in this study to that reported in the progeny of Dexter animals, along with the fact that Dexter cattle were introduced into Florida prior to 1900, suggests that the guinea is a descendant of the Dexter.
