We liked our other Shigeshigetani bull, VT Y10, so much, that we promoted his full brother, VT A03, after selling VT Y10. VTA03 is an exceptional bull with strong growth and great marbling potential. The sire, Shigeshigetani, is ranked as one of the top six bulls in the Lone Mountain Performance Study.
Our Shigeshigetani carcasses from the full brother of A03 have demonstrated outstanding marbling as shown below. On a primarily grass fed program, the sire side carcasses have averaged a hanging weight of 925 lbs. at 26 months and given a yield of 62% of live weight. A03 is well balanced on the dam’s side with strong reproduction and milk traits. His dam holds the record of being the leading flush cow on our farm.
The marbling from the dam’s side is surpassing the Shigeshigetani carcasses on our farm. His genetic contribution would be great in the building of any wagyu herd. The beef from the full brother bull have captured the following testimonials from one of the top five chefs of NYC: “this beef is of the highest quality”.
