Wagyu Genetics Europe is proud to have the confidence of WKS and to take over the exclusive distribution for Europe. This is being done in close collaboration with Luke Smith of Nobel House Wagyu from Britain.
This is Michitsuru, a 100% Tajima bull. This bull was bred in 1999 and is thus a recorded history in the successful production of F1 animals and thoroughbred breeding. His descendants have 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 directly 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 credibility.
His pedigree indicates the reliability of 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 belief is that 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.
Note: In the Japanese 2001 Sire evaluation report, the top three marbling positions in Japan:
• 1st – YASUFUKU 165-9 (JAP) – reference for pedigree
• 2nd – FUKUSAKAE (JAP)
• 3rd – YASUHIRA (JAP) (deceased due to FMD 2010)
Sire – Michifuku
