We do a lot of embryo work. We strive to improve our Wagyu herd as well as the Wagyu herd outside Japan by utilizing embryo transfer technology to replicate our best dams bred to the very best sires available. We believe the best Wagyu of the future will not be the original foundation animals exported from Japan, but rather will be animals carefully selected by mating the very best genetics and proven through testing. We produce and sell frozen embryos from our herd of donor cows, bred to a variety of bulls that we believe have merit, with a goal of creating offspring that we will better than either their sire or dam.

BLACK WAGYU EMBRYOS:
LMR Ms Hirasimbo x Shigeshigetani – 10 export-qualified Grade 1 embryos available. This is a pairing of a very phenotypically correct, well balanced donor cow with outstanding carcass genetics, bred to Shigeshigetani, a famous sire known for very consistent and powerful transmission of his outstanding characteristics to offspring. When flushed on June 20, 2018, this donor cow produced 28 good embryos from this mating, and we are offering up to 10 of these Grade 1 embryos, which were flushed under the protocol and veterinary inspection for export to South Africa and many other countries (but not qualified for shipment to the European Union). $1,000.00 each
711 Shigemichizuru 6966 x Bar R Polled Zurutani D64 – 3 export-qualified Grade 1 embryos available. This mating is an outstanding young female mated with one of the top homozygous polled purebred Wagyu sires. Calves will carry a single copy of the polled gene and since the polled gene is dominant, the calves will be polled. This donor cow is grand-sired by Shigeshigetani 30T and out of one of our top donor cows that is genetically 25% Itozuru Doi TF151, 25% Michifuku, 12.5% Itoshigenami, 6.25% Fukutsuru-068 and 6.25% Kikuyasu-400. So this donor cow has top carcass quality genetics. In the Summer 2017 “Elite Wagyu Performance Test” she gained 2.54 lbs. per day, which is very good for a Black Wagyu heifer, and for residual feed intake, a measure of feed efficiency, was above average, ranking 14 out of 38 heifers in the performance test. Paired with Bar R Zurutani 64D, who is out of a son of Shigeshigetani 30T, with Shigeshigetani (Haruki 2 / Suzutani), Itozuru Doi TF151, and Fukutsuru-068 prominent in the pedigree, calves out of these embryos will be polled and have the genetic potential to be in the top 10% of the Wagyu breed as far as carcass quality. Donor cow dam is SCD AA and Tenderness 7. Embryos were flushed under the protocol and veterinary inspection for export to South Africa and many other countries (but not qualified for shipment to the European Union). $1,250.00 each
RED WAGYU EMBRYOS:
711 Fuyoko 645D x Red Emperor – 4 Grade 1 embryos available. A Red Wagyu heifer sired by Kalanga Red Star and out of the Australian Kalanga Empress Fuyuko E115 with AA SCD, flushed to the very respected Red Emperor. This donor cow has Shigemaru, Akiko, Hikari, Judo, Big Al and Tamamaru sires in its pedigree, and is out of the Fuyuko foundation cow. Flushed to Red Emperor, who is sired by Big Al out of Dai 8 Marunami. Donor cow and sire are tested free of the known genetic recessive disorders. Donor cow tested SCD=AA and Tenderness=5. $1,000 each.
