Born on February 21, 1993 in Kumamoto Prefecture
Her Sire, “Dai 3 Mitsumaru” was proven in Kumamoto and his proof consisted of 366 head, where 27. 6% of these carcasses graded higher than the BMS of 5, ranking him third in 1998. Average age of the animals in his proof were 23.1 months with an average daily gain of 0.98 kg.
Her Dam, “Naoto” was classified Ikyu at 82.3 and is sired by “Tamanami” (also the sire
of her Grand Dam.) The Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued an order to destroy this animal while in perfect health at 13 years of age. Tests were negative as were all Wagyu imported from Japan.
Before “Naomi” left Japan, she was confirmed safe in calf to “Namimaru”, which resulted in “Momigimaru” FB10979 – born on January 15, 1995. Her Sire, “Namimaru” was proven in Kumamoto and his proof consisted of 71 head, where 29.6% graded higher than BMS of 5, ranking him second in 1998. The average age of the animals in his proof were 23.1 months with a average daily gain of 0.99 kg. This animal was unfortunately lost due to a difficult calving.
We have three daughters from Momigimaru – WSI Hinomaru FB13801, WSI Dai 1 Momigi FB13802 and WSI Dai 2 Momigi FB13802 and her grand daughter WSI Akimaru FB14371.
