LMR Ichiban 810T, a full brother of LMR Kenichi 807T, and a half-sib to both LMR Kazuki 770T and LMR Ms Sanjirou 767T, was sired by WKS Michifuku.
WKS Michifuku was sired by Monjiro 11550, listed by Kenichi Ono as #7 on his list of the top 15 most outstanding Wagyu of Japan. Monjiro, sired by Yasumi Doi J10328, was born March 15, 1981 in Hyogo Prefecture and was the 11th calf by his dam, Harumi.
Michifuku’s dam, Michiko J655635, was sired by Tanishige 1526, grandsired by Yasutani Doi J472 and great-grandsired by Yasumi Doi J10328. Yasumi Doi J10328 also grandsired Yasufuku J930, and appears twice in Michifuku’s pedigree. Yasumi Doi J10328 and Yasutani Doi J472 are considered to be two of the most famous of the Tajima/ Tajiri line. This lineage supports Michifuku’s high regard.
810T’s dam, WKS Nakazakura, was born in Japan in 1994 - she was the daughter of WKS Nakagishi 5 and both were imported to the US by Mannett that same year. Nakazakura’s sire, Itomichi J1158 was left behind in the Mother Country.
Nakazakura’s pedigree is worth a deeper look: her sire, Itomichi J1158 also sired Itomichi 1-2 and was a very influential sire in Takeda-san’s herd (being the patriarch of a line of cows that produced Itoshigefuji TF147, Itohana 2, Mitsuhikokura TF149 and many others). Nakazakura’s paternal grandsire was Dai 7 Itozakura – a sire so famous that a phone card bearing his likeness was produced in Japan – his genetics are widely represented in the West by the progeny of his sons: Itofuji J483 (Itoshigefuji TF147), Kitaguni 7 の 8 (WKS Kitaguni Jr), Itohana J809 (TF Itohana 2 and TF Kikuhana), and Itokitazuru J1081 (Itozuru-Doi TF151).
Nakagishi 5, Nakazakura’s dam, was sired by Kenryu J1905: of the Dai 2 Kedaka line (Shimane Prefecture), classified Kurogen.
LMR Ichiban 810T’s half-sib LMR Ms Sanjirou 767T gives an indication of the marbling ability in the genetic line, as witness by her steer calf LMR Yasufuku 1257Y (39.84% IMF as shown).
LMR Ichiban 810T’s untimely death in 2010 prevented him from witnessing the success his offspring would bring to the Lone Mountain battery, but we are fortunate to have collected him and now are able to offer a limited supply of semen.
LMR Ichiban 810T has been tested free for all known Wagyu genetic defects. His SCD result is VA.
