Mismarked traits on Herefords (missing feather, excessive white, etc.), uncharacteristic traits on black Angus cattle (large ears, uncharacteristic substance of bone, etc.) and uncharacteristic traits on red Angus (large ears, light colored, uncharacteristic substance of bone, etc.)  This division does not include blue roans or baldies of any color (red, black, smoky, grey or yellow).
