Sires

BEIJIRO 36Z

Beijiro 36Z is a son of the original World K’s Beijirou, who is a full brother to Genjiro. He is sired by Haruki II, and his dam is Okutani, who is one of the great foundation cows of the breed. The Okutani line that our Bejiro son shares also goes back to Fujiko, the first Wagyu female born in the U.S. We also purchased her exclusive cell line in 2012 for $26,000.

The Okutani line our bull comes from is a powerful line, second only to the Suzutani influence breed wide. Beijiro 36Z is out of Mizukura 17W, who weighs 1300 pounds; she traces back to Kobe Mizutani 607E, who currently weighs 1540 pounds. Kobe Mizutani is a daughter of Kenhanafuji, who reportedly sold for a breed record of $150,000.

Our bull weighed in at 1680 pounds on May 20, 2016. His average birth weights are 55-60 pounds, and he is a long bodied bull who will add length in his offspring.

Semen, at $25 a straw, is limited and export qualified to Canada, Mexico, Australia, most of South and Central American countries. Not EU qualified.

Sexed semen is available but must be made to order.

RCC SHIGEFUKU 059

RCC Shigefuku 059 is sired by the original Shigefuku, the highest content Kedaka bull ever to leave Japan. Shigefuku himself did not leave Japan; only a small amount of semen made the voyage. Shigefuku is a son of Dai 20 Hirashige 287 and is a half-brother to the greatest bull in Japan, Hirashigekatsu. Hirashigekatsu is producing heavy carcasses with extreme marbling. At the 2007 all Japan Zenkyo competition, six of the top ten bulls were sired by Hirashigekatsu.

RCC Shigefuku 059s Dam, Sanshiga, is our top flush cow and top income producing cow. She has produced 39 fertilized embryos for us in one flush and consistently flushes double digits. She is a high Tajima cow, weighing by scale 1500 pounds. Sanshiga has every notable sire in her pedigree: Sanjirou, Shigeshigetani, Haruki II, Michifuku, JVP Fukutsuru 068, and she has the greatest cow ever to leave Japan, Suzutani, on both sides of her pedigree and another great Dam of the breed, Okutani, as well.

Our ideal mating for this Shigefuku son would be to line breed other Dai 20 Hirashige 287 influenced cows and lock in the genetic power from that family. RCC Shigefuku 059 is pictured at 20 months and 1300 pounds. His birth weight was 55 pounds. We expect him to go beyond 1800 pounds.

Semen, at $25 a straw, is limited. He does qualify for export to EU, Canada, Mexico, South and Central America, Australia and South Africa.

Sexed semen is available but must be made to order. EU sexed semen will be available until the bull leaves EU quarantine. No more will be produced after that.

TOSHIRO

Our Toshiro bull is son of LMR Toshiro 1/3, who is a 1900 pound bull from the Lone Mountain program. LMR Toshiro 1/3 traces back to Kitaguni 7/8, one of the most famous Japanese sires through his Dam, World K’s Reiko, who is another great female of the breed.

Toshiro’s sire, LMR Toshiro 1/3 has an average hanging carcass weight of 1030 pounds and 30.51% IMF. His dam is Kobe Mizutani 17W, who currently weighs 1540 pounds. Kobe Mizutani is a daughter of Kenhanafuji, who reportedly sold for a breed record of $150,000. We expect high growth and extreme marbling from Toshiro’s sons.

Semen, at $25 a straw, is limited, he does qualify for export to EU, Canada, Mexico, South and Central America, Australia and South Africa.

Sexed semen is available but must be made to order. EU sexed semen will be available until the bull leaves EU quarantine. No more will be produced after that.

Michifuku

Michifuku is thought to be the best carcass bull ever to leave Japan. Even with smaller framed offspring, his progeny's carcass characteristics are superb. Michifuku was formerly the number one marbling bull in the U.S. Wagyu Sire Summary, and consistently ranks second in ribeye area (REA) and fourth in backfat thickness (EPD). Michifuku's sire, Monjiro 11550, is linebred to Tajima J105, great-grandsire of Yasumi Doi J10328. Michifuku's dam, Michiko J655635, was sired by Tanishige 1526 and grandsired by Yasutanidoi J472. Yasumi Doi J10328 and Yasutanidoi J472 are considered to be two of the most famous of the Tajima/ Tajiri line.

Yasumi Doi J10328 sired Yasutanidoi J472, as well as Dai 2 Yasutsuru 774, sire of Fukutsuru 068. Yasumi Doi J10328 also grandsired Yasufuku 930, sire of Yasufuku Jr. and grandsire of Takazakura. Yasumi Doi J10328 appears twice in Michifuku's pedigree. This lineage supports Michifuku's high standing.

According to World K's Group data on Michifuku's progeny in Australia:

12,000 F1 calves were fed 540 days [ADG = 2.31 lbs].
85 percent graded 9+ on the Australian scale [grading above 12.9 on a numerical scale, which is three full grades above the highest USDA grade of Prime].
15 percent graded 7-9, on a numerical marbling scale 10-12.9. [On the USDA scale, numbers 7-9 would be considered Prime+ and Prime++.]

Descendants of Monjiro 11550 produced carcasses that sold at auction for $16,000, $18,000 and $21,000 at the 2007 All-Japan Wagyu Competition.

Kitaterayasu-Doi ETJ-003

Kitateruyasudoi J2810 is a linebred Kikuterudoi son of Terunagadoi. Kitateruyasudoi J2810's paternal grandsire and maternal greatgrandsire is Kikuterudoi. Kitateruyasudoi J2810 also traces back to Yasumi Doi J10328 and Yasutanidoi J472 twice. Kitateruyasudoi J2810 has a strong prepotency for bigger frame size and desirable coat type. He is one of the three foundation sires of Westholme Wagyu. 

Itamoritaka ETJ-002

Itamoritaka gives good growth and frame but combines strong maternal traits. A grandson of Dai 7 Itozakura the most famous bull of the Shimane Prefecture, dominating pedigrees in Japan. 

Hirashigetayasu ETJ001

Hirashigetayasu J2351 was sired by Dai 20 Hirashige J287. His maternal great-grandsire is the distinguished Tajiri-line Tayasudoi. Hirashigetayasu J2351's Kedaka lineage shows strong propensity for growth and balance with a larger frame. An official Japanese progeny test showed that at least 80 percent of his steers would gain A5 grade, the highest given to carcasses in Japan.

Sanjirou

Sanjirou has the potential to become one of the most influential sires of the Tajima line, having great meat quality, large ribeye area, thick rib and high yields. In the 2006 U.S. Wagyu Sire Summary, Sanjirou ranks third highest in marbling, behind Fukutsuru 068, but ahead of his sire, Michifuku.

Sanjirou is a linebred Yasumi Doi J10328 bull. Yasumi Doi J10328 sired Yasutanidoi J472 and grandsired both Fukutsuru 068 and Yasufuku 930. Sanjirou is out of the greatest cow to leave Japan, Suzutani, who represents one of the most potent bloodlines in Japan. Her great-grandsire, Yasumi Doi J10328, is widely known for his ability to produce excellent meat quality and size. Suzutani's sire was Tanishige 1526, whose progeny test results demonstrate that he has heritable traits with a BMS score +3.1 (above the national average of +2.1) and a yield grade of 72.7 percent.

Suzutani's mother was Suzunami and her grandsire was Shigeshigenami J10632, who has a reputation for producing the best genetics in Japan. Sanjirou's genetic background suggests that he will have ideal meat production efficiency, with great meat quality, large REA, thick rib and high yield rate.

The World K's Group has proven this genetic prediction accurate, as reflected by the collection of his progeny data:

6,800 F1 calves fed 540 days [ADG = 2.09 lbs].
88 percent graded 9+ on the Australian scale [grading above 12.9 on a numerical scale, which is three full grades above the highest USDA grade of Prime].
12 percent graded 7-9, on a numerical marbling scale 10-12.9. [On the USDA scale, numbers 7-9 would be considered Prime+ and Prime++.]

Shigeshigetani

Shigeshigetani has some of the most powerful genetics in the Wagyu breed. He has Yasumi Doi as well as Yasu- tanidoi bloodlines but he carries the Kumanami strain as well. The Kuma- nami family is know for its extremely potent marbling genes. Shigeshigetani is a half brother to the famous bull Sanjirou. Note: The World K Group reports 3800 F1s were fed 540 days ADG 2.156. 90% graded 9+ on the Australian scale, meaning 3 full grades above USDA highest grade of prime. The remaining 10% graded 7-9 on
the Australian scale and this would be prime to prime + on the USDA scale.

Fukutsuru 068

Fukutsuru 068 is the #1 marbling sire in the U.S. Sire Summary. His grandsire is Ya- sumi Doi J10328 and his grand dam is Kikutsuru J978542 which was known as the Hygo cow. Fukutsuru traces back two times to the Hygo cow. He also traces back twice to Yasumi Doi, the sire of Monjiro and grandsire of Yasufuku 930. 068 is proof of his genetics and has been shown to pass these marbling genetics on to his progeny.

005 Shigefuku J1822

005 Shigefuku J1822is a son of Dai 20 Hirashige who is a son of Kedaka. Shigefuku is a bull bred from within the main Kedaka lines and inherits strongly from Eiko. He also exhibits higher growth rates, body volume and desirable coat type.

The Kedaka line was formed in the Tottori Prefecture from descendants of the sire Kedaka born in 1959 from the Eiko strain.

Dai 20 Hirashige is an important sire of the Kedaka line. His semen is still used although the price per straw is higher than $1000 each. He gained 84.7 points as an "Ikushu-Toroku" bull which was the highest honor in Japan at the time. The number of registered sons by this bull is very high.

005 Shigefuku was a bull that never left Japan, just his semen. So the supply of semen is almost nonexistent, we were fortunate enough to find a very limited supply and flushed our best cow to this bull.

Shigefuku weighed in at 1735 pounds at 23 months of age, an astonishing weight for any Wagyu bull at that age. We have no known reports of his full mature weight since he never left Japan but realistic estimates are 2400 pounds or more. This is the only known picture of this very rare bull to exist.

BR Itomichi 0602

This son of Itomichi 1/2 is used in our herd and throws outstanding size. His calves grow faster than any of the other sires we've used so far, we are really excited to see what his heifer calves will do when bred back to a Tajima sire like Fukutsuru 068 or Sanjirou. It should produce great size and ample marbling.

Itomichi 1/2

Itomichi 1/2 is sired by Itomichi and grandsired by Shimane's most well know bull, Dai7 Itozakura crossed with Dai2 Kintou. Itomichi 1/2 dam's grandsire is 100% Tajama. This bull's genetics consist of 13% Tajama, 2% Kadaka, 85% Shimane. This bull still exists in the U.S. and his estimated weight is over 2000 lbs. Itomichi 1/2 has been used to increase mature size and growth rate without reducing marbling. We really like the cattle we have from him. They have good volume, length and great spring of rib. This bull will produce some of the largest full framed Wagyu you can get and you will not compromise maternal ability or meat quality.

005 Shigefuku 13M

This bull is a total outcross to the Wagyu genetics. His sire is the highest content Kedaka bull outside of Japan, 005 Shigefuku J1822. This bull is well balance, long, good spring of rib, very easy keep- ing kind of bull who has a thick loin, great feet and legs and he brings a lot of milk to his daughters. He is also a great marbling bull. We use this bull to breed back our donor cows for calf, their is sexed semen offered on this bull, we have been breeding our best donors to the sire of this bull 005 Shigefuku J1822 who is the rarest of the original import bulls ever to leave Japan, actually the bull never left, just limited straws of semen made the journey.

UKB Dia 6 Kitaseki

Kitaseki has growth and maternal characteristics from Tottori/Kedaka line and CWT from Itozakura. Dai 8 Yuhou is an old Tottori bull who was known to add good frame to his calves and high milking ability to his daughters. Dai 6 Seizan is Itozakura/Tajima cross to improve marbling growth.

Westholme Hirashigetayasu Z278

Z278 has all three of the Westholme original import bulls in his pedigree. He is a son of Hirashigetayasu 001 out of a cow who is a daughter of Kitateruyasudoi 003 and his great grandsire is Itomoritaka 002. Z278 is a great balance of Kedaka Fujiyoshi and Tajima and is a very thick and correct bull. His daughters have good udders and his calves are born easily even though they are a little larger than the average Wagyu calves.

Beijiro

Beijiro is a bull that has virtually no semen available and what is available is valued at over a few hundred dollars a straw. This bull is a son of Okutani one of the original females imported with Suzutani, he is sired by Haruki 2 who is starting to become one of the top trait leaders in the breed. He is full brother to Genjirou and full brother to Fujiko the first Wagyu born in the United States. Fujiko was considered so valuable we bought her cloning rights in 2012 for $26,000, this genetic line is one of the most important and most influential in the breed with plenty of room to grow and not breed your genetics in a corner.

Takamichi Doi 

Takamichi Doi is sired by Takazakura and on the dam side you'll find JVP Fukutsuru 068, Kanetani, Hisako, Misako and Michifuku. He has some of the most dominate lines ever exported from Japan.

WSU Akiyoshi 479P

Akiyoshi carries two copies of the desirable Exon 5 "BB" for strong marbling ability. “479P” was bred in the Washington State University program and a son of the breed’s #1 marbling sire in “068”. The dam of “479P” is by Kikuhana the #10 ribeye bull of the breed and the second dam is by “Kikuyasu 400”, the #3 ribeye bull of the breed and the largest bull ever exported. “479P” blends an extremely strong marbling and ribeye combination into one super genetic package.

SPB Michitani 0014

SPB Michitani 0014 is another bull from the Kanetani family, a mating of Michifuku X Kanetani which is a superior line that includes Hisako and UKB Terukane. This bull is used exclusively by Super Prime Beef for producing hundreds of F1 and full blood feeders. This bull is a new comer to the seed stock side of the breed but probably the most proven Wagyu on the feed lot. We are going to be flushing many of our donors to this bull.
