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 (FB18346) x Shigeshigetani (FB2907)  –  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.  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 European Union).  $1,000.00 each.

LMR Ms Hirasimbo (FB18346) x Tajimax (FB16674)  –   8 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 the European Union).  $1,000.00 each.

711 Moolanroo 325A (FB26635)  x Tajimax (FB16674)  –  5 export-qualified Grade 1 embryos available.  This pairing is of a very high Tajima-line donor cow out of the Okutani cow family, with outstanding carcass genetics in the pedigree including Sanjiro, Kttateruyasudoi, Takazakura, Kikuhana, Michifuku and Haruki 2.  The sire is Tajimax, the largest and highest growth high-Tajima sire in the Wagyu breed, and 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 more high-marbling genetics introduced from the dam side, will also have outstanding carcass qualities.  Dam is VA5 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 the European Union).  $1,000.00 each

CHR Ms Kitiguni 121M (FB5342)  x Tajimax (FB16674)  –  5 export-qualified Grade 1 embryos available.  This pairing is of a very high Tajima-line donor cow sired by Takazakura and out of a dam sired by Kitaguni Jr. and out of dam sired by Kikuyasu-400 out of the Yuriko-1 foundation cow.   The sire is Tajimax, the largest and highest growth high-Tajima sire in the Wagyu breed, and 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 grandsire, 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 more high-marbling genetics introduced from the dam side, will also have outstanding carcass qualities. Dam is VA10 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 the European Union).  $1,000.00 each.

711 Shigemichizuru 6966 (FB27552)Bar R Polled Zurutani D64 (PB25456)  –  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 SCD/Tenderness is AA/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 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.  $1,000 each.
