Estimated Breeding Values are available from relatives that have been recorded in ABRI BREEDPLAN and estimates have been made by Wagyu International from ancestors that have recorded progeny.
EBVs are positive for growth, size, milk production, marble score and fineness of marbling. Both sides of the pedigree contribute. Itomichi 1/2 with a Marble score EBV of +0.5 is responsible for the strong marbling and fineness of marbling is from Itozuru Doi TF151.
Milk EBV of +7 kg is strong and is consistent on both sides but strongest contribution comes from trait leader Itomichi 1/2 with +12 kg. Growth rate is virtually on par with average for the 2013 born calf crop and is primarily driven from Lake Wagyu Y045 breeding.
Ohanasaki Beatrice has the added advantage of low birth weight.
