This proven donor is a very balanced, functional female from an ultra-elite cow family. One of the great original foundation cows, JVP 298, was an unequaled source of exceptional high performing great females. One of her outstanding daughters, JVP KIKUSHIGE 5298E, excelled all other cows in the US in one category, while she was still living, 5 of the top 20 sires in the US for marbling were her sons. No other cow living or dead had more than 2 in the top 20. The sire sequence of ESF Z0278-16-237 is, JVP 400, JVP 068, MICHIFUKU and Z278. She herself is a powerful topped, high capacity, very correct individual who has produced 21 embryos in a single flush. She is offered at an age at which Wagyu cows are most productive.

The heifer calf at side is sired by LMR RMW ITOMORITAKA "Rocky" a very widely used sire with over 240 progeny from registered cows who has been utilized in several full blood meat programs where he sires large rib-eye carcasses of very high quality. He also excels in producing great females with very good milking ability. He has also sired National Champion show cattle. Expect great functionality, performance and balanced carcass merit.
