Buyer will get 1 IVF heifer embryo from a very unique and powerful mating. It is sired by Sanjirou. He 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 line bred Yasumi Doi J10328 bull. Yasumi Doi J10328 is sired by Yasutanidoi J472 and grandsired both Fukutsuru 068 and Yasufuku 930. Sanjirou is out of the prominent Japanese cow 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.
The dam of this embryo is IWF Ms Hiraruki 05A. She is a daughter of MFC Hirashige 0-39. He is sired by Hirashigetayasu J2351. He is known for growth, balance and enhanced marbling characteristics. In Japan, 80% of Hirashigetayasu J2351’s progeny had the highest carcass grade that is possible to achieve. On the maternal side we find World K’s Michifuku who also passes on exceptional carcass characteristics to his offspring. At one point, Michifuku was the number one marbling Wagyu bull in the United States while maintain a huge ribeye. This lot’s sire’s genetics carry a SCD AA which is the most desirable for the good fat and a tenderness score of 4. Carcass quality is not a problem with this individual as his genetics are loaded with exceptional carcass merit while maintaining growth and frame.
This IVF guaranteed heifer embryo has it all stacked in her favor.
