LMR Shichiro 2403Z was Lone Mountain’s "go to" Shigeshigetani herd sire prior to his sale to Imperial Beef.

WKS Shigeshigetani is thought to be fundamentally a marbling sire - but LMR is finding him to be a growth sire as well. Shigeshigetani is Sanjirou’s half-brother, but more closely bred than most half-siblings: Suzutani is the mother of both Shigeshigetani and Sanjirou.

Shigeshigetani’s sire is Haruki II, half-brother of Michifuku, and both were sired by the same bull, Monjiro 11550.

Monjiro 11550 is linebred to Tajima J105, great-grandsire of Yasumi Doi J10328.

The combination of the two sires Shigeshigetani and Kitaguni Jr bodes for well extraordinary balance - both growth and marbling in one tightly bonded package.

2403Z’s dam sire, WKS Kitaguni Jr is a calving-ease leader documented by BREEDPLAN, and him just behind WKS Yasufuku Jr and Fukutsuru JVP068 in addition to bringing Marbling to the table ranking him at the top for the breed outside Japan.

In the 2017 LMCC Sire Performance Study, Kitaguni Jr as Dam Sire places 2nd for IMF with 33.03% based on 13 carcass images, and 4th for Marble Fineness (29.66).

Additionally, Kitaguni Jr ranks 3rd for IMF with 31.71% based on 55 carcass images studied and ranks 4th for Marble Fineness (30.16%).

In that same study, 2403Z ranks 2nd as Sire for REA 14.22 square inches based on 38 images studied.

Sires and Dam Sires with 5 or less progeny are omitted from the study.

LMR Shichiro 2403Z has an impressive set of maternal BREEDPLAN figure for Birth Weight EBV and marbling traits.

As you can see from the carcass image shown of a half-sib to 2403Z, LMR Shigeshigetani 8183U produced a 43.15% IMF ribeye, proving again that the influence of Shigeshigetani as a marbling sire.

If you are considering a moderate growth, good marbling and easy calving bull, then look no further than what this emerging star can offer.
