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 will be superior to both their sire and dam.

BLACK WAGYU EMBRYOS:
LMR Ms Hirasimbo 3004 (FB18346) x Shigeshigetani (FB2907) – Five (5) 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. Dam SCD/Tenderness is AA/4. 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 Australia or the European Union). $700.00 each.
LMR Ms Hirasimbo 3004 (FB18346) x Tajimax (FB16674) – Five (5) export-qualified Grade 1 embryos available. The dam is a very phenotypically correct, well balanced donor cow with outstanding carcass genetics, which has proven to be extremely fertile, consistently producing above-average numbers of embryos from flushes, and having raised two outstanding natural calves. The sire, Tajimax, a promising newer sire that while a majority Tajima-line genetics, is one of the largest, fastest growth sires of the Wagyu breed, which we believe is likely superior to his sire Hirashigetayasu Z278 and his grandsire Hirashigetayasu J2351. Tajimax is sired by Westholm Hirashigetayasu Z278 and out of GAW Sanshiga, a dam that Chris Brant of Reserve Cattle Co. has said is his very best donor cow. Tajimax is a huge sire that obviously inherited his sire’s size and early growth, but which has far more Tajima genetics, and which Tajima genetics are some of the top carcass quality animals in the breed, including Kitateruyasudoi, Shigetshitetani, Michifuku, Sanjirou and Fukutsuru-068. What is unusual about Tajimax is that a very large portion of his total DNA is from smaller, slower growth high-Tajima-line sires that are known for being some of the top carcass quality sires in the Wagyu breed, but Tajimax turned out to be as large as, or even larger, than his sire and grand-sire, which are known for size and growth at the expense of carcass quality. We are hopeful that this breeding to a donor cow that is high Tajima-line with outstanding carcass quality genetics will produce large, high growth animals that with even greater levels of high-marbling genetics introduced from the dam side, will also have outstanding carcass qualities. Dam is AA4 and Sire is AA6. Embryos were flushed under the protocol and veterinary inspection for export to South Africa and many other countries (but not qualified for shipment to Australia or the European Union). $700.00 each.
RED WAGYU EMBRYOS:
711 Red Star Fuyoko 654D (FB26676) x Red Emperor (FB14999) – 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 SCD/Tenderness is AA/5. $800 each.
