Hirashiget WG045 is a bull from ET with an outstanding pedigree. His semen is the first sire that Uwe Jerathe is offering from his own Wagyu-Genetics breeding.
Pedigree of Hirashigat WG045
His father is Hirashigetayasu, one of the "Foundation Sires" of Westholme in Australia. He comes directly from Dai 20 Hirashige, who was line-bred to Kedaka and in Japan earned special status with a total of over 75,000 offspring! This genetics also has a lot of growth potential in addition to good maternal properties. On the maternal side of Kedaka, there is also outstanding marbling from ancestors from Hyogo prefecture.
The mother of Hirashiget WG045 is Sanshiga. She has very high Tajima share despite a weight of 680 kg! Sanshiga has many of the world's famous bulls in her pedigree: Sanjirou, Shigeshigetani, Haruki II, Michifuku and JVP Fukutsuru 068. There is also Suzutani (on both sides of her pedigree) and Okutani. She also has very good results in embryo production!
The Tajima content dominates in Hirashiget WG045. However, the Kedaka, Tottori and Okayama lines combine to 43%, so that he is classified as a group C bull for the Wagyu Fullblood Rotation, as growth has the highest ranking in his EBV predictions from his pedigree. It is therefore expected that progeny from Hirashiget WG045 will not only demonstrate strong growth and size, but also high milk yield and fertility. This should be accompanied by good marbling due to the high Tajima content. He is free of known genetic recessive conditions. Thus, he can be used without restriction for fullblood breeding.
