Affected animals (those with two copies of the recessive allele) are born with severe deformities including twisted rear legs with fused joints, large abdominal hernias and/or skull deformities. Should calves survive the birthing process, they cannot stand to nurse. Outcast carrier refers to a rare variant identified in the TKA Outcast sire pedigree.
