And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstreaked, speckled, and grisled.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

31:10 saw in a dream. God revealed to Jacob in this dream that, even though the cattle all seemed to be of the dominantly solid colors, those which actually were mating were genetically heterozygous, thus producing an abnormal proportion of spotted offspring to augment Jacob’s flock. God thus providentially honored Jacob’s faith and punished Laban’s cupidity.
