Tara Hills Farm Kinufuji P198
Kinufuji is a fullblood bull, imported as an embryo from David Blackmore in Australia. Born in August 2018 he is out of Blackmore Hikohime Z265 and by the fullblood bull Blackmore Kinuyasudoi Y350.
Kinufuji is a classic marbling over size breeding. His dam Z265 is sired by TF147 Itoshigefuji and grandsired by TF151 Itozurudoi, making her high in Itozakura bloodlines known for maternal qualities. His sire Y350 is a 100% Tajima bull so should bring marbling and carcass traits.
David Blackmore’s comments: Z265 X Y350, this bull will increase body size and should increase carcass quality especially in eye muscle area.
Kinufuji is registered with the AWA and eligible for registration with the NZWBA. AWA pedigree and EBV. $10,000.
Tara Hills Farm Yasufuji P202
Yasufuji is a fullblood bull, imported as an embryo from David Blackmore in Australia. Born in July 2018 he is out of Blackmore Aizakura Z209 and by the fullblood bull Blackmore Dai Ichi Yasuchiyo G615.
Yasufuji is another classic mix of Tajima and Itozakura bloodlines. His dam Z209 is sired by TF147 Itoshigefuji and grandsired by TF146 Kikutsurudoi. Z209 is a daughter of the cow Aizakura U100, described by David as his "best ever cow" with over 3000 descendents on his farm.
His sire Dai Ichi Yasuchiyo is Blackmore's third highest genomic rated bull. He has a high Tajima content (72.5%) but is still the largest bull in the Blackmore program at over 1000kg.
David Blackmore’s comments: This bull will be a good all round bull that will maintain carcass quality in Full blood breeding and increase size.
