Kumiko is both the highest marbling female from the great Anio 6 cow family, and one of the highest type females in the breed. She has also proven herself as an excellent show animal, by winning her class at the 2015 World Beef Expo. Kumiko comes from a cow family that has produced many high scoring bulls which have been used to increase frame and milking ability. This family's genetics have been used on Tajima to provide more milk and increase their mothering abilities.
The 6th dam of this donor is the genetic powerhouse, Anio 6, who has produced many elite Wagyu animals. Her offspring have some of the best rumps the breed has ever seen, supporting their udders to increase their already tremendous milking abilities. TF Itohana 2 was one of her most famous sons who made great framed cattle with strong maternal abilities, sold production, and powerful mature cattle.
Kumiko is by far the tallest yearling that has ever been at Designer Wagyu. Backed by Itomichi, she combines his high type and large frame, as well as the correctness of her sire, World K's Sanjirou. With some of her calves hitting the ground soon, they are predicted to share her excellent growth traits and large frame.
Michifuku is thought to be the best carcass bull ever to leave Japan. Even with smaller framed offspring, his progeny's carcass characteristics are superb. Formerly the number one marbling bull on the U.S. Wagyu Sire Summary, Michifuku consistently ranks second in ribeye area (REA) and fourth in backfat thinkness (EPD). His sire, Monjiro 11550, is linebred to Tajima J105, great-grandsire of Yasumi Doi J10328. His dam, Michiko J655635, was sired by Tanishige 1526 out of a Yasutanidoi J472 daughter. Yasumi Doi J10328 and Yasutanidoi J472 are considered to be two of the most famous from the Tajima/Tajiri line.
Yasumi Doi J10328 sired Yasutanidoi J472, as well as Dai 2 Yasutsuru 774, sire of Fukutsuru 068. Yasumi Doi J10328 also grandsired Yasufuku 930, sire of Yasufuku Jr. and grandsire of Takazakura. WIth Yasumi Doi J10328 appearing twice in his pedigree, it supports Michifuku's high standing.
