DAM IS A PROLIFIC FLUSHER
SG53 offers solid and easy way to improve your herd. Finding sexed female semen from high end wagyu bulls is not easy, we are trying to help with that. Another thing that is hard to find are top EBV animals that do not have L10 nor United in the pedigree, which makes SG53 even more unique. He ebbs and flows around the top 1% in all of the Australian EBV indexes including the most important marble score and marble fineness. He accomplishes this while maintaining size as well which is what balances and yields such nice indexes. The dam flushes strong, typically giving 20+ conventional embryos and 30+ IVF embryos.
From a pedigree standpoint we have quite an interesting animal. Sumo Michifuku F154 is one of the top and first Australian Wagyu bulls to hit he US market. He is one of the first bulls to accomplish the 'holy grail' of being both high marble and also of good size, He carries record high ebv's for marbling and still maintains top 20-30% of the breed in terms of size and carcass. He's everything breeders have tried to make for years and years. On the dam side we have a unique pedigree starting with her sire, Sanjiro 3. Sanjiro 3 had some of the highest marbling and carcass scores possible back in his day (2017 Sire Summary), and is also a very rare semen that is hard to find. On her other side she is built with a double dose (line bred) of Kitaguni Jr, one of LMR's most coveted animals with a long track record of producing highly marbled carcasses.
NuWagyu is focused on selling high-end Wagyu breeding stock. As you browse, you'll notice that we have our emphasis on SCD-AA and defect-free wagyu cattle. The Wagyu breed while very small relative to other commercial breeds such as Angus, is highly sought after for their unique marbling abilities. The heavy marbling of Wagyu is what drives the demand, and as such we have prioritized that trait within our herd. This high marbling comes at a cost though, these animals are slower to grow which adds cost to the beef operation as well as breeding operations. Generally, these animals aren't harvested until they reach 30 months of age and the females aren't bred until they reach two years of age. Wagyu cattle have secondary pros and cons as well. Their other big downside is, generally speaking, their mothering skills aren't the best, primarily driven by low milk supply to the calves. With that, a creep feed routine is paramount with Wagyu calves. Those are the main two downsides. The other upsides are docility (toward humans more so than other cows), the ability to cover more cows as their semen quality is excellent, and finally low birth weight. The low birth weight in some cases is the most sought-after trait, although this is tied to also receiving a premium for the calves over domestic bulls. First time heifers can be problematic and using a low birth weight bull will greatly improve calving ease. Prior to Wagyu, the Longhorn breed was a popular heifer bull choice due to low birth weights. With Wagyu, you get that same benefit but you also receive a premium when selling the calves, it really is a win-win situation for commercial breeders. In addition to selling cows and bulls, we also offer embryos. Embryos are an economical way to start bringing Wagyu into your herd. We can run custom flush programs as well, just send us a note and we can start the conversation.
