LMR Taisuke 401B was sired by LMR Koichi 1409Y and importantly, the result of a half-sib mating to BR Ms Yasufuku 0645 and his paternal great grandsire is Kitaguni 7/8.
Kitaguni 7/8 was a significant Fujiyoshi/Shimane/Itozakura sire and perhaps the most famous son of Dai 7 Itozakura J65 and she was considered by Kenichi Ono to be “the finest of all Kedaka cows”.
LMR Taisuke 401B is a grandson of WKS Kitaguni Jr, a BREEDPLAN leader for Marble Score and Birth Weight.
In the 2017 LMCC Sire Performance Study, Kitaguni Jr ranks fourth for Marble Fineness as both Sire with 30.16 based on 55 carcasses and 4th as Dam Sire with 29.66 based on 13 images studied – and second as Dam Sire for IMF with 33.03%.
Kitaguni Jr ranks third as Sire for IMF with 31.71%, behind only his son, the sire of 401B, LMR Koichi 1409Y with 33.25% based on seven images, who makes his first appearance as second highest ranked sire in the 2017 study.
In addition, Koichi 1409Y ranks second as Sire for Marble Fineness at 31.56, ahead of his sire Kitaguni Jr and LMR Yojimbo 634S and behind only Yasufuku Jr.
See the evidence of 1409Y's ability in the rib eye photograph of his daughter 4292B that measured 42.90% IMF.
Taisuke 401B’s sire Koichi 1409Y and his dam LMR MS Itoshigefuji 0182 both share the same dam, BR Ms Yasufuku 0645 whose sire was Yasufuku Jr - a superb carcass sire imported from Japan and whose sire was Yasufuku J930, ranked Number 1 by Kenichi Ono in his well-researched tome, Outstanding Wagyu of Japan.
0645 has been one of Lone Mountain’s best performers and she has produced some of the ranch’s highest grading carcasses, including 8166U at 50.2% IMF and 8167U at 39.1% IMF, both sired by Kitaguni Jr, and 9373W at 36.77% IMF sired by LMR Yojimbo 634S.
In the 2017 LMCC Study WKS Yasufuku Jr is the leading Sire for IMF with 33.34% with 35 carcasses imaged and data calculated by Dr. Kuchida’s software program.
Yasufuku Jr is also the leading Dam Sire for both IMF at 34.11% and Marble Fineness at 32.48 based on 35 carcasses.
401B’s half sib 4292B whose rib eye is shown confirms the influence that these founding genetics have on the breed.
LMR Taisuke 401B is a well-balanced bull that we fully expect to pass on brilliant marbling inherited from both his parents.
As the Japanese breeders have shown in the past, half-sib matings reap great rewards when the risks are well mitigated.
