Kiramusuko II

Premiere in Europe - semen from the first homozygous polled bull!

Purebred at the highest level - 98.44% Wagyu!


Kiramusuko II - 21 months of age

SCD: VV Tenderness: 9 free of known genetic disorders

Worldwide, the breeding of polled Wagyu is on the rise! In Australia astronomical prices have been paid for one year - both for heterozygous and homozygous sires! In America, a bull was sold for $ 115,000 - a record amount! This was only topped by a Mayura Itoshigenami Jr. son in Australia for the absolute top price of $ 185,000.
Steffen Schäfer (www.der-vogelsberger.de) and I started breeding polled Wagyu genetics years ago and can now offer very good results:
Kiramusuko II is a very well-bred bull who brings excellent sires to his pedigree through his father BAR R Arimura 30B:
The father of Arimura is BAR R 52Y, who has the top bull Shigeshigetani 30T (outstanding marbling, RibEye and carcass weight) in the pedigree, as well as the world-famous sires WKS Shigeshigetani, WKS Michifuku, Fukutsuru 068 and Haruki 2. This bull was already used very often in Australia for breeding with very good results in terms of growth, milk production, good temperament, marbling and RibEye! A homozygous hornless bull with this father was recently sold for AUD 48,000!
The mother of Arimura is BAR R 5U, which was sold for $ 34,000 at Jerry Reeves' production sale, BAR R Wagyu, Washington State. It brings a very correct frame, as well as good milk yield. In her pedigree is the bull Takasuru 1K, which also produces a very good marbling.
The dam of Kiramusuko II is Kira WG010, who also has very good sires in her pedigree:
Her sire Sato is a purebred bull, who has the first export bulls in his pedigree - Mt. Fuji (Kikunori Doi and Tafuji Doi) and Mazda as well as Judo for the Red Factor. For semen from these animals today high sums are paid! The semen from Sato was already imported to Germany in the mid-nineties!
The dam Kira comes from the famous Westholme breed, which has introduced some of the foundation sires. On the father's side are Dai 6 Seizan and Kitateruyasudoi, famous for his marbling and fineness. The dam's side is completely derived from imported Japanese genetics - Hirashigetayasu, Kitateruyasudoi and Kitasakaedoi!
Due to the diversity of ancestors, Kiramusuko II can be used for breeding in many Wagyu!


Kiramusuko II - an excellent basis for the start of breeding polled Wagyu!

Trent Bridge F115

Trent Bridge F115 with 75% Tajima content has superior marbling from leading bloodlines which trace back to Japan.
Trent Bridge F115 is Group D in the Wagyu Fullblood Rotational Programme so has a valuable role in Fullblood breeding. Fullblood Wagyu herds will benefit from F115 semen as progeny derived over high growth and high milk dams will be complemented by the powerful marbling IMF% and also the quality through fineness of marbling that he brings. His pedigree is endorsed by superior carcass breeding predictions from Breedplan. He is in the Top 1% for Marble Score EBV and Fullblood Terminal Index, in the Top 5% for Marble Fineness EBV and virtually in the Top 10% for light Birth Weight EBV.
He is half-brother to Mayura Itoshigenami Jr whose semen sold for $3,050 a straw in 2016 and for $22,000 a straw in 2017. They both share Itoshigenami TF148 as their sire but Trent Bridge F115 is tested free of F11 and CHS and there is no history of known recessive conditions in his pedigree so he can be used with confidence in seed stock herds.
Trent Bridge F115 semen will be particularly valuable for crossing over conventional base breeds to improve premium eating quality from increased intramuscular fat and improved fineness of marbling. He will be particularly well suited for F1, F2 and F3 production over medium to large size breeds.
He is structurally sound as he has covered cows in rugged pastoral conditions.
Wagyu, in general, produce light calves at birth, but Trent Bridge F115 possesses extremely low birth weight EBVs. Trent Bridge F115 semen will present small calves so can be used to open heifers.

Sire of Trent Bridge F115 is Itoshigenami TF148. He is the Foundation sire exported from Japan that has the highest Marble Score estimated breeding value (EBV) of +1.7 in Australian Breedplan amongst his peers and is comfortably still ranked in the top 1%. His Terminal Carcase Index of $351 is within the Top 1% too. An ancestor from Itoshigenami’s maternal side, Dai 7 Itozakura, is the most prominent Fujiyoshi sire in Japan known to pass on a large frame from strong growth rate.
The dam, Trent Bridge Wagyu C212, is sired by Kitateruyasu Doi “003” and Michifuku is her maternal great-grandsire. Both of these sires are descendants of Yasumi Doi. Yasumi Doi is considered to be one of the leaders of the highest marbling Tajima line with origins in Hyogo Prefecture in Japan.
Trent Bridge C212, is still active in the Trent Bridge Wagyu herd at nine years of age and has produced seven registered Fullblood calves from natural mating and five as an embryo donor. Her Grandsire is Itozuru Doi TF151 who contributes growth and milk from his Dai 7 Itozakura ancestry and also the Kedaka line through Nishizuru. Trent Bridge C212 comprises 74% Tajima, 16% Fujiyoshi and 7% Kedaka.

Trent Bridge F155 has been tested to be free from CHS and F11 and his pedigree is free from other known recessive conditions.

Trent Bridge F115 is Group D in the Wagyu Rotational Programme which is rated as "Better
Marbling, Medium Size and Average Maternal Sire".

Sire Itoshigenami is 75% Tajima which comes from the Kumanami line. The value from Kumanami
was not recognised in Japan until more recently when good marbling was attributed to Shigekanenami blood through the grand-dam. Itoshigenami and Suzutani are both descendants from Shigekanenami and they also have the highest EBVs for marbling amongst their peers for sires and dams respectively. The remaining 25% in Itoshigenami pedigree is Fujiyoshi – from Itozakura.
The dam, Trent Bridge C212 is 76% Tajima. Her sire is Kitateruyasu Doi who brings Yasumi Doi line Tajima from his dam and Kikumi Doi line Tajima from his sire. Trent Bridge C212 complements the marbling with milk and growth from 6% Kedaka and 16% Fujiyoshi primarily from Itozuru Doi TF151 through her dam.

WKS Michitsuru is 100% Tajima genetic of the finest. This bull was bred in 1999 and is thus a long tradition in the successful production of F1 animals and thoroughbred breeding. The descendants with an extensively proven marble score distribution as shown below:
-  7+ 20%
-  9+ 80%
(According to the Australian Standard - Source: WK's Australia)
WKS Michitsuru comes direct from WKS Michifuku, which is rated as the number 1 for the inheritance of marbling in Australia.

WKS Michifuku is a bull, which was entered directly in the Japanese herd book giving the bull a level of recognised creditability. Notably his pedigree indicates the reliability in his ability to promote the heritability of marbling performance in his offspring with his sire Monjiro producing carcasses that sold at auction for $16,000, $18,000 and $21,000 at the 2007 All-Japan Wagyu Competition.
Our believe is that the dam WKS Hisako is one of the most prominent aspects of the pedigree. Particularly considering the fact Hisako’s sire Yasufuku 165-9 remains Japans number one marbling sire. Her dam (Hikaru) proving Kumanami influence ( Kumanami influence regarded as having the ability to improved marbling quality and marbling heritability in resulting progeny) it’s a powerful combination that resulted in Michitsuru’s exceptional performance.

This beef is the result out of a F1-mating (Angus x Michitsuru), born in Australia and fed in Japan - an outstanding quality!

Hirashiget WG 045 (Herdbuchnummer: 10.204576):

Hirashiget WG045 has a SCD: AA and a Tenderness of 6! Free of known genetic disorders!

The father of this new breeding bull is Hirashigetayasu, one of the "Foundation Sires" from Westholme. His father Dai 20 Hirashige is linebred to Kedaka and has in Japan an outstanding number of offsprings 75.000! There is a lot of growth potential as well as marbling potential due to Tayasu-Doi out of the Tajiri-line.

The mother of Hirashiget WG045 is Sanshiga, 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.

The Tajima content predominates (52%), but Kedaka bloodlines combine to 30% while Fujiyoshi comprises 14%. However, Kedaka, Tottori and Oakyama combine 43% so Hirashiget WG045 is classified to be a Group C sire!
