Livestock / Animal Husbandry / Cattle colours
Spanish term or phrase: bermello
From a document describing a particular breed of cattle. This part describes the accepted coat colours for this breed. The breed is from Galicia, so perhaps this is Gallego? Even if that is the case, what would be the closest in English? Context:

"Coloración de la capa.- Su color es fundamentalmente rubio, trigueño o canela (capa teixa), admitiéndose oscilaciones que van desde el claro (marelo) hasta el oscuro (bermello)."

The "bermello" is a variation in colour for the RAZA RUBIA GALLEGA:
It's not a breed.

See p. 10 of this PDF: http://www.alpa.org.ve/PDF/publica/CAP 1.pdf

Roan Cattle

The roan colour can also result in Shorthorn Cattle, but in a case of intermediate inheritance or Codominance. These cattle can not breed true, as this type of intermediate inheritance is also Heterozygous, or hybrid, as two different colour alleles are required form the parents to produce this particular coat colouring.
