Title: Sublime
Post by: CRS on October 30, 2021, 08:37:29 PM
We put our bull Sublime in a post a year or so ago. Hes now been collected and his first calves have hit the ground and most are weaned now. They have been better than expected. We used him on a wide variety of heifers and cows and only had one pull due to presentation. Birthweights were 65 to 80 lbs. We even linebred him and those calves were outstanding. He is a Dual Threat son (I80 x WDM/Ace) out of a Maternal Perfection x WDM x Kadabra x Ali x Total Play x Blackjack Simmi. He is 3/8 Maine and 12.77 Chi, so every calf can register Chi. Attached are some recent pics in his working clothes after covering about 75 cows from Spring through Summer. No grain and just on pasture. Semen is available through us in Ohio and at Hawkeye. He is also listed in the Bull Exchange.

Hope he works as good for you as he has for us. Should make some nice replacements.

Did you use him on anything that may have had a little Shorthorn in the woodpile? O0

I did. Our thriller shorthorn and her MAB daughter. Picture of both of them. Black heifer is out of the MAB cow and the reddish one out of her dam. Sold quick, before we even broke them.  Weve fought mud all year, so excuse the first 18 inches of mud. They were both low birthweight and both dams were 100 pound calves and the MAB cow is kind of a pud, but shes a great cow and has some of the best calves every year. Shes probably under 1200 as a heavy bred.

Has he thrown any red calves or does he have a red Dam or sire?

The one shorthorn was an off red color. Dual Threat is a red carrier, I have a red one out of him. Dam and grand dam knock the white off and have always thrown black or smoke.

From what you have said and shown so far there isn't anything that would suggest that he is a red gene carrier yet. He could have gotten the black gene from Duel Threat and if his dam is homo black the he couldn't throw a red calf.

Short of testing him I have no idea if he is homo or hetero black. The shorthorns he was bred to were blues.  One calf is black with white markings and the other is a deep red. I would assume since he had a red calf he is most likely a red carrier or hetero black.
