The experiments of T. H. Riches concerning the production of monsters in cattle
Monstrous calves due to the operation of a lethal factor have long been known to appear as the result of mating Dexter cattle together. A similar type of monster, though rather less marked, has been met with in Norwegian Telemark cattle. Its appearance is also due to the operation of a lethal factor. The experiments recorded show that these two lethals are genetically independent.
A few observations on the inheritance of colour and of the white pattern of Telemark cattle tend to confirm the results of earlier observers.
