• April 2013 Belcampo Farms sold 30 lots with influence from Fujiko.
• One of the most influential bloodlines of the breed.
• Fujiko has moved on to greener pastures.
• Carries rare genetic mutation for double copies of the Alanine gene “AA” responsible for softer fats and lower melting temperatures.
• In a recent sale Sara P. a great granddaughter of Fujiko sold for $19,500.

Fujikos mother, Okutani was one of the three original import cows that came over from Japan along with Suzutani and Rikitani. Okutani was born on January 5, 1992 in Miyagi Prefecture of Japan. She was said to be the most powerful genetics of the three cows having the legendary sires of Shigeshigenami, Okushige, Kikutani, Dai 7 ltozakura. Okushige was number 1 for BMS in Japan in 1990. Two full brothers of Okushige held the same honor. Kikutani and Dai 7 ltozakura are still considered two of the top 10 sires of all time in Japan. Okutani died shortly after her arrival in the U.S. and very few progeny were produced.

Fujikos sire Haruki 2 was born on April 24, 1992 in Yamanashi Prefecture of Japan, Haruki 2 was chosen among Michifuku to be imported in 1993 along with Okutani, Suzutani and Rikitani. Haruki 2 leads 200, 400, 600 day weights and mature cow size in EMA and IMF. Haruki 2 is truly one of the superior sires of the breed and was the perfect combination for Okutani to produce Fujiko along with her two outstanding full brothers Genjiro and Beijiro.

AKIKO FB#9499

• Daughter of Suzutani, one of the three original females imported in 1993.
• Akikos mother is considered the greatest cow ever to leave Japan.
• Sired by Michifuku, full sister to Sanjirou, half sister to Shigeshigetani.
• Arguably the rarest Wagyu outside of Japan.
• Free of all genetic defects.
• Carries rare genetic mutation for double copies of the Alanine gene “AA” responsible for softer fats and lower melting temperatures.
• April 2013 Belcampo Farms sold 17 lots with influence from Suzutani for $309,300.
• The most influential and sought after bloodline in the breed.
• DNA of Suzito 3 a maternal granddaughter of Suzutani sold for $19,500 at the 2014 Mile High Sale. Akiko is an original daughter of Suzutani.
• Akiko has been retired and currently weighs over 1500 pounds.

Here we have SPB Akiko 5 AO10 FB#9499 who is arguably, along with Fujiko, the rarest Wagyu outside of Japan. She is a Daughter of in many opinions the greatest cow that ever left Japan, Suzutani. She is Sired by Michifuku one of the most influential Sires in the U.S. and Australia. She is Full sister to Sanjirou and Half sister to Shigeshigetani the two most utilized bulls in the U.S.

She also carries a rare genetic mutation for double copies of the Alanine gene “AA” which is responsible for softer fats and lower melting temperatures. Granddaughters of Suzutani routinely sell for over $10,000, we are so impressed with this Suzutani daughter she is being cloned.

We decided it would be more profitable and beneficial for us and other breeders to offer multiple cell lines rather than us produce a limited number of clones ourselves. These two cows are genetic gems of the highest quality. The competition for these two cows is nonexistent and the DNA alone could command over $30,000 each at auction. We'd much rather sell this DNA half a dozen times at a good price rather than to one individual for a large sum that could also control the number of progeny and not allow other breeders take advantage of two of the most influential genetics to leave Japan.

What you are purchasing

• We are offering limited cell lines of each cow. Only 6 cell lines from each cow will be offered.
• The buyer will receive a viable cell line that can be grown and supply enough DNA to clone an infinite amount of clones.
