SHIGEFUKU J1822

FB6538

Black Horned Fullblood

3 STRAWS

005 Shigefuku J1822is a son of Dai 20 Hirashige who is a son of Kedaka. Shigefuku is a bull bred from within the main Kedaka lines and inherits strongly from Eiko. He also exhibits higher growth rates, body volume and desirable coat type. The Kedaka line was formed in the Tottori Prefecture from descendants of the sire Kedaka born in 1959 from the Eiko strain. Dai 20 Hirashige is an important sire of the Kedaka line. His semen is still used although the price per straw is higher than $1000 each. He gained 84.7 points as an "Ikushu Toroku" bull which was the highest honor in Japan at the time. The number of registered sons by this bull is very high. 005 Shigefuku was a bull that never left Japan, just his semen. So the supply of semen is almost nonexistent, we were fortunate enough to find a very limited supply and flushed our best cow to this bull. Shigefuku weighed in at 1735 pounds at 23 months of age, an astonishing weight for any Wagyu bull at that age. We have no known reports of his full mature weight since he never left Japan but realistic estimates are 2400 pounds or more. This is the only known picture of this very rare bull to exist.
