LMR Yosuke 5165C is the result of a mating between two illustrious foundation sires of the Wagyu breed, WKS Kitaguni Jr and Itoshigenami TF148.
Yosuke 5165C’s paternal grandsire Kitaguni 7/8 was the sire of Grand Champion of Seventh Zenkyo held in Iwate Prefecture in 1997.
When Kitaguni’s indirect testing was completed in 1990, it was overshadowed by very stable Yasufuku 165-9 harvest results, so 7/8 did not get much attention until around 1993.
Once he became known, Kitaguni 7/8 managed to leave everyone else in the dust, winning nationwide carcass contests four years in a row in 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000.
5165C’s sire, WKS Kitaguni Jr is, according to BREEDPLAN and the LMCC Sire Summary, a marbling star all Wagyu sires tested.
In the 2017 LMCC Sire Performance Study, WKS Kitaguni Jr, with 55 carcasses studied, ranks third with an average of 31.71% and, with 13 images studied as his dam’s sire, Kitaguni Jr displays his staying power by ranking second at 33.03%.
In terms of Marble Fineness, Kitaguni Jr ranks fourth as both Sire and Dam Sire.
Yosuke 5165C’s half-sib, LMR Koichi 1409, based on seven carcasses has passed his sire Kitaguni Jr in both IMF and Marbling Fineness, ranking second in both categories and has sired the young and promising sire LMR Taisuke 401B.
LMR Kitaguni 1441Y, another Kitaguni Jr son, is making noise on both counts – his first three harvested progeny graded 52.03%, 39.72%, and 31.92% IMF.
Two shining examples of Kitaguni Jr’s marbling abilities being passed down to his sons and Yosuke 5165’s materanl grandsire Itoshigenami TF148 is from the famous Shigeshigenami sire line and these ancestral lines are renowned for delivering a high degree of marbling and with a high probability that those exceptional characteristics are passed down through the generations.
TF148 is a breed leader for BREEDPLAN Marbling EBV and Fullblood Terminal and a Trait Leader for Birth Weight EBV.
The Australian Wagyu Sire Research Project has uncovered as the finest of the highly marbling sires Itoshigenami TF148 out of a Monjiro-line dam by Sanjirou named Mayura Itoshigenami Jnr A0139.
An A0139 ET son Mayura L0010 was sold for a record-breaking $105,000 Australian dollars at the 2017 Australian Wagyu Annual conference surpassing the 10 straws of semen from Mayura Itoshigenami Jr that sold in May 2016 in Australia for an astounding figure of $30,500 Australian dollars.
Yosuke 5165C’s BREEDPLAN data is impressive for Marble Score EBV and the genetic combination of his sire and maternal grandsire leads Lone Mountain to believe that he will be an exceptional bull with great carcass quality prospects.
An example of that sire stack is shown in the rib eye photo of the paternal sibling to 5165C that is pictured LMR Kitaguni 2016Z.
