pedigree for Lisheen N23

Sire of Lisheen N23 is Sumo Michifuku F126. Like his father, he is an impressive bull with good conformation, structure and calm temperament.

Sumo Michifuku F126 has 2 252 registered progeny across 78 herds, 137 carcass progeny and 145 registered daughters. He is trait leader for Milk with +6kg and for Marble Fineness with +0.35. His sire, Michifuku, is the supreme carcass son of Monjiro who was extremely popular for quality beef production in Japan. The accuracies of most of F126's genomic EBVs are above 90% except for one that is above 80% so he has been truely proven.

Michifuku is also on F126's dam's side, three generations back, so there is another stamp of carcass quality but Simon Coates balanced this with growth by using Dai 2 Kinntou - the dam that distinguished him from the early days by bringing in size to the young breed.

Simon also brought in Itohana for growth through F126 too because he is line bred to Dai 7 Itozakura so is entirely Itozakura and Shimane genetics.

Dam of Lisheen N23, Sumo Tani C135, is exceptional for growth and is another of Simon Coates' design. Monjiro's other famous son - Haruki 2 - is renouned for his daughters that have been bred from and he is a maternal grand-sire. Terutani 40/1 brings Dai 2 Kinntou from his dam and Itomichi/Dai 7 Itozakura from the sire. Some Kikuhana influence comes through Aizakura 26/2.

The prefectural composition based on bovine Growth Hormone grouping is presented:

Prefectural group and composition for Lisheen N23

The most influential foundation ancestors have been combined to give almost 50% Tajima content from the use of sons of Monjiro on three occasions and there is some Kikumi-doi. The prefectural composition in this analysis is determined by the prefecture in which the early Japanese ancestors are born and not where they have been recorded or sold and registered after performance testing. The classification could be for Tajima or Itozakura/Shimane because they both are high so the genomic EBVs are reviewed before a decision is made.

The genomic EBVs from DNA from Lisheen N23 reveal very strong breeding values for traits of economic importance. There is an advantage in growth, size and milk over strong carcass traits - most notably marbling IMF% and fineness - hence the Classification to Group A in the Wagyu Fullblood Rotation despite possessing strong carcass traits. The descriptor for Group A is 'large size, excellent maternal and moderate marbling sire', and Lisheen N23 exceeds this

The Wagyu Production Indicators show expected performance of progeny with finishing on Grass or Grain and Lisheen scores extremely strongly for both with +40% for Grain Finishing and the maximum +50% for Grass Finishing.

The ancestors that have been combined in Lisheen N23 have been confirmed by DNA analysis to be associated with key performance traits that are valuable in Wagyu beef production for both grass and grain finishing.

He has 45 registered progeny across eight herds and there are 34 progeny that have been analysed. His genomic EBVs have been found to have high accuracies as expected from the pedigree with accuracies for growth and performance traits between 60 to 70 percentage and carcass trait accuracies are mainly in the 60 percentile range. The majority of his offspring should commence with strong growth and finish to produce high quality beef.
