LMR Harukiro 5340C was sired by Kitateruyasudoi J2810 ETJ003 and out of one of our best donors, LMR Ms Itomichi-4632 803T.
Kitateruyasudoi was sired by Terunaga Doi J1472 - a preeminent sire of the historical Tajima/Tajiri line and the most famous son of Kikuteru Doi (who occupies both sides of ETJ003’s pedigree). Kitateruyasudoi also traces back to Yasumi Doi J10328 three times. Kenichi Ono referenced ETJ003’s sire, saying “After Terunaga Doi, there is no other bull within sight with the potential of Yasumi Doi or Yasutani Doi in all of Hyogo Prefecture.”
Terunaga Doi lived to be 16 ½ years old, producing over 40,000 straws in his lifetime and over 20,000 progeny – a stone monument was built to honor his heritage. He was known all over Japan primarily as a dam sire, passing on great maternal traits. When he was euthanized in 2002, he was compared favorably to Yasumi Doi, Kikuteru Doi and Tanifuku Doi. Kitateruyasudoi J2810 (ETJ003) is the only son of Terunaga Doi available to breeders outside Japan.
BREEDPLAN figures demonstrate his abilities, ranking Kitateruyasudoi J2810 as a Trait Leader and in the top 2% for Birth Weight EBV (-1.6) and in the top 1% for Gestation Length EBV (-2.3). Kitateruyasudoi is in the top 1% for Marble Fineness EBV (+0.50) and in the top 2% for Marble Score EBV (+1.1).
Recently, a deceased Kitateruyasudoi son (Macquarie Wagyu Y408), had 10 straws of semen on offer at the May 2017 Australian Wagyu Elite Wagyu Sale. The lot was bought for an astounding AU$ 28,000 per straw – a stunning purchase: AU$280,000!
Harukiro 5340C’s dam is LMR Ms Itomichi-4632 803T – we have harvested three of her steer calves – grading 41.01%; 30.09%; and 39.6% IMF. 803T's sire, BR Itomich-0602 4632, we have found to be one of the best of the Blue Rock bull battery. Her dam sire, WKS Sanjirou, one of Michifuku's most well known sons, really needs no introduction, except to say that many consider him to be better than his sire. And that is saying a lot.
5340C is one of LMCC’s newest additions to our battery of bulls. He shows enormous potential as a young sire with BREEDPLAN pedigree figures ranking him in the top 5% of the breed with a Marble Score EBV (+1.0), Marble Fineness EBV (+0.34), and in the top 7% for Ribeye EBV (+2.7). 5340C has also been assigned an outstanding Birthweight EBV (-0.9), ranking him in the top 5% for the Wagyu breed.
