The following bulls were all born in Japan or from Japanese bred cows once they arrived in the US. These are the foundation bulls that were used as sires in our Triangle B Ranch Fullblood Japanese Black Wagyu breeding herd. We continue to use semen from many of these bull today!
TF Itomichi ½/TF36

This bull produces good quality carcasses with large frame size. He consistently increases mature size and growth rate without reducing marbling. He adds good maternal traits including very good milking ability in his female offspring. He is sired by the great Itomichi, one of seven sons out of more than 1,000 to outperform his sire, Dai 7 Itozakura.
TF Itohana 2/TF38
Registration Number: FB2294
This bull produces good quality carcasses with above average frame. He adds good milking ability to the Tajima lines and is ideal for producing breeding females. He is a line bred Dai 7 Itozakura son and has been used to produce breeding females at the Ranch.
TF Kikutsuru Doi/TF146
Registration Number: FB3615
The first of two sons from the great Japanese bull Tanifuku Doi that is available outside of Japan. Tanifukudoi is sired by Yasutanidoi out of Japan’s most famous cow, Kikutsuru, affectionately known in Japan as “The Hyogo Cow”. She is accredited for putting size into Tajima cattle. Tanifukudoi and Yasufuku J930 are half brothers on the sire side. Semen on this bull is very rare.

Registration Number: FB3681
This is the most prominent sire used at the Ranch to produce breeding females. Offspring from these females produce good carcass, the best average daily gain, early maturing, and the best marbling from the Dai 7 Itozakura bloodline. These females carry a calf very well on pasture. He is a line bred Itofuji son.
Registration Number: FB3685

This bull produces excellent carcasses with super fine marbling, especially over Takeda genetics. His females provide good milk and are maintain their body composition well on pasture. This is a line bred Shigekanenami bull. Shigekanenami was the bull that made the Kumanami line famous and left a great result in his descendants.

This bull is the #1 marbling bull in the U.S. Sire Summary and has consistently held that position for many years. He produces excellent fine marbling and is best used in terminal production. His carcasses consistently grade out the highest but his offspring generally have smaller ribeye areas. Female offspring have a tendency to demonstrate reduced but adequate milk.
