Bar R 12P TakazakuraPrevious Page
BAR R 12P Takazakura was the first bull purchased by Lone Mountain, in 2005, from Jerry Reeves, Bar R Cattle Company. A classically balanced bull, Bar R 12P is comprised of 54% Tajima-traced genes with the remainder being growth and maternal genetics.
12P’s sire, Bar R Takazakura 1K is ranked #4 for Carcass Weight and is tied with Bar R Shigeshigetani 30T in Marbling EPDs (#8) in the 2014 WSU Sire Summary. He is double-crossed to Fukutsuru JVP068 – the #1 Marbling US FB Wagyu Sire according to that same summary produced by Washington State University.
In the 2017 LMCC Sire Performance Study, 12P Takazakura ranks as the number 3 Dam Sire for Ribeye Area (14.33”2) based on 9 carcass images. BAR R 12P Takazakura has a balanced set of BREEDPLAN figures for growth with impressive carcass data. He is positioned in the top value of the percentile band for Rib Fat EBV (+2.8) and Rump Fat EBV (+4.4). These results would indicate a strong relationship to finishing ability, early maturity, and improvement in fertility (increased cycling prevalence).
BAR R 12P Takazakura’s untimely death in 2007 (from noxious weed poisoning) was a loss to the Lone Mountain herd, but his influence lives on with many successful progeny and grand progeny, delivering a balance that we seek in this breed.
There exists an extremely limited supply of semen.
