Genetic conditions have different modes of inheritance. All genetic conditions monitored by Angus Australia follow a single recessive gene mode of inheritance, making them easy to manage.
These single gene recessive genetic conditions result in 3 possible genotypes:
This diagram provides an illustration of the possible mating outcomes from different mating combinations for a single gene recessive genetic condition.
