Wagyu breeding is our passion. Our ambition is to select the best Wagyu genetics for you. Take advantage from our breeding animals, embryos and semen.



Mayura Pioneer (ADBFP0879)

The sire of this bull has one of the highest SRI (Self Replacing Index) worldwide - Mayura Itoshigenami Jnr! A straw of his semen costs over $30,000 at the last auction in Australia! He has consistently delivered the best results in meat production for years. Mayura Pioneer is a direct son of this bull and introduces Itozuru Doi TF151 through the dam's side as well as Hikohime which is well proven in breeding. This combination turns him into a top sire in Wagyu breeding. As far as we know, he is the only available bull which is directly descended from Mayura Itoshigenami Jnr. and is free from known genetic disorders.
This bull has an SRI of $244 - with top genotypic values for RibEye (+6.1), marbling (+2.4) and marbling fineness (+0.29). A MUST HAVE for all breeders who want to improve these genotypical values and want to have the worldwide No. 1 bull Mayura Itoshigenami Jnr in their pedigree!

List price 150 € net per straw

Q122 (LTCFQ122)

One of the most balanced bulls outside Japan - in the Australian herdbook with an SRI of $330 and the other indices are in the Top 1% range as well! You will currently not find any bull in the EU with a higher breeding index than this son of the outstanding Sumo Cattle Michifuku 154.
On the dam's side, TF 148 Itoshigenami as well as Kitateruyasudoi are added - two sires known for top values in marbling and fineness! He is free of all genetic disorders! Q122 is an absolute "allrounder". He descends milk, a high carcass weight (+39), but also very good values for RibEye (+3.3), marbling (+2.2) and fineness (+0.44) - a very rare combination!
After only 316 days he already had a weight of 370 kg - this suggests values that further improve the genomic breeding values over time. A MUST HAVE for all breeders who wants to have the genetics of a Top 1% bull of the Australian herdbook in their stock!

List price 165 € net per straw!

Breeding Wagyu since 2006

Since 2006 I have been breeding Wagyu. The legendary Kobe cattle enjoys as beef in the top restaurants in Japan and the United States as a delicacy an outstanding reputation. In Europe is a growing awareness of foodies as well!

The myth according to the Wagyu be massaged in Japan every day and get beer in the feed in order to develop the marbling. This can done without it! The genetic predisposition is available, a high caloric feed regimen also contributes to the quality of the exclusive meat product.

Benefit from the experience - I can support you! If you are interested in semen, embryos, recipient cows with fullblood embryos and livestock, please look under "embryos and livestock"! In May 2007, the first Wagyu fullblood calve was born.

The genetic pool has been expanded by importing bulls from the US systematically, so a good starting point for further breed development is given. Furthermore, I have Wagyu fullblood semen imported from Australia. Especially remarkable is the bull Yasuzane, who was bred by Barbara Benjamin (Goshu Wagyu). This father is of Yasufuku Jr. (son of Yasufuku, one of the most famous bulls in Japan) and maternal Chikazuki, whose parents are Takazakura (good marbling and size) and Suzutani 976 (probably the best cow that has ever left Japan). The best conditions for further breeding!

In the meantime, you can find animals from our breed in many other herds, not only in Germany but also in Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, Czech Republic, Hungary, England an Northern Ireland.

It is all about the breeding Wagyu cattle:

Wagyu Breeding Advice also for starters and beginners: We advise you on the breeding and genetics of Wagyu cattle, bulls and Wagyu heifers, starting with Wagyu sperm, embryo transfer, Wagyu embryos and Wagyu insemination.

As a competent partner for breeding, we are available for all questions about

    • Wagyu pregnancy, juveniles, polled wagyus and oxen
    • breeding, e.g. purebredness and crossbreeding, e. g. Fullblood, Purebred, Crossbreed and F1 Breeding and the subject of predatory breeding
    • Genetic peculiarities, but also the feeding of the animals, are topics with detailed information on our site
