Add value to your non-replacement animals by using Wagyu semen to produce Wagyu-cross calves.
Wagyu beef is renowned across the world for its high level of fat marbling, making it extremely tender, juicy and delicious.
Produce dairy-beef calves that can be raised for beef and sold at a premium.
The beef animals produced when Wagyu is crossed with Holsten Friesian or Jersey are achieving high praise across Europe and the globe. Especially when you can stamp the grass-fed label on them.
The early maturing of the Jersey breed, when crossed with Wagyu, produces a high-end product, creating an excellent eating experience in restaurants.
Wagyu bulls are also known for their ease of calving, making them a good option to get the bottom 20% of your herd in-calf early in the mating season.
LIC Ireland offers semen from two top-class Wagyu bulls.
Ohanasaki President 901
Ohanasaki President 901 is the most exciting Wagyu bull to come to Europe. He’s a young bull with a very promising future. His sire, Ginjo Marblemax 901, excited Wagyu breeders when they discovered his offspring had amazing growth that produced valuable high-quality cuts.
Ginjo is in the top 5% for eye muscle area in a list of 376 bulls. Ginjo’s semen could not be exported to Europe but embryos from him could. Fortunately, LIC can offer you these strong bloodlines through his son. They suit pasture-based growth, and go well crossed on a dairy cow, particularly those with Jersey content.
Ohanasaki Brillant S3032
Ohanasaki Brillant S3032 combines three different strains within the Wagyu breed. He is 59% Tajima, 7% Kedaka and 30% Fujiyoshi.
His sire, Fukutsuru 004, is a trait leader for milk, birth weight and short gestation length. He’s also in the top one third for marbling finesse.
Brillant has crossed very well on Holstein cows over the years, and more recently on crossbred cows, giving a much sought-after animal for the first cross. His calves are quick on their feet with easy calving.
Brillant is 10 years old and still going strong, with offspring throughout Europe. His crosses (F1) have been the delight of chefs in many restaurants. We’re fortunate to offer a Wagyu bull of such high calibre.
