Good Foundation Genetics Tall Boy combines the genetics of Itoshigenami TF148, Michifuku, Haruki II and Okutani and produces progeny with good growth, large ribeye and amazing marbling. He is a full brother to both Rowdy and Maverick. Tall Boy is bred from foundation genetics and has been used as an F1 sire. His genetics provide remarkable F1 carcasses and he is adds value to use with fullblood Wagyu, producing growth, extreme marbling and fineness of marbling, and large loin size through foundation genetics 50 percent Itoshigenami. 25 percent Michifuku and 25 percent Fujiko. Tall Boy,s genetics combine two of the highest quality meat sires ever to leave Japan – Itoshigenami TF148 and Michifuku with the great growth of the Okutani maternal line through Fujiko the first Fullblood Wagyu born in the U.S. whose dna sold for $26,000 dollars. TF148 genetics are well proven as a terminal sire for extremely high marbling and good fineness of marbling. Michifuku has consistently produced huge loin and ribeye sizes with extremely high marbling and fineness of marbling. The grand-dam is no other than Fujiko – combining Haruki II and Okutani. She is a full sister to Genjiro, a sire whose progeny and genomic data show very high growth and marbling. Genjiro semen, if found, commands prices in excess of $1,000 per straw. Okutani, one of the original 3 females imported from Japan, is considered the most potent and powerful for marbling and meat qualities. However, very few progeny exist by Okutani. Combining Okutani and Itoshigenami creates a double cross of Shigeshigenami – a world renown, premier sire from the Kumanami line.
US EPD ranks Tall Boy well above average on Ribeye Area, Fat Thickness, and IMF %
With Kouysun as his sire (bringing in the great 930 blood) and the great cow MFC Hisako 3-17 dam ( who has changed hands twice for extremely large sums each time). 808F, or as hes known on the farm as Kage, comes by way of the Kanetani maternal family. Kanetani herself is a daughter of Tanishige , who sired two Cows you may be familiar with ( Suzutani and Rikitani ) 808F is in our opinion a exceptional animal with great length, size (10-28-2020 - 1540 lbs) along with a great attitude. His calves are weiging on average 65lbs at birth.
We expect great things from this bull, help us collect some data on him and add some great genetics to your herd.
MRB SHIGEFUKU 13F ET
This bull will make quality Fullbloods. He gets his size and maternal traits from his Kedaka and Shigefuku J1822 lineage and marbling and meat quality from his famous Lone Mountain Ranch Sanjiro Dam 767T who has 84 registered offspring including LMR NOBO 1208Y and LMR RMW Rock from Rocky Mountain Wagyu, and is a full brother to YAMA. Even for his size, he is a good natured and calm bull.
Weight at photo was 2150 lbs. He is AA-5.
TJ MR SHIGEFUKU 82M 370B
This son of LMR RMW Itomoritaka, aka “Rocky”. He has been widely used and proven in the USA as an ideal source of growth and maternal traits. The late Eldon Clawson loved this bull and praised his conformation and structure as the best in Wagyu. This is stacked on a rare direct daughter of Westholme Shigefuku 005. Shigefuku is a son of the legendary Japanese Kedaka bull Dai 20 Hirashige. He is known for creating fantastic females that are ideal herd replacements. The maternal line here is a rare Westholme cow family, the Yoshie maternal line. Don’t miss a chance at an ultra-rare Westholme cow family in the USA.
