Westholme Hirashigetayaso Z278

from 80.00

Semen Collected For Canada and Most Asian Countries Except China, the EU and we have sold out of semen In USA.

The first bull I purchased in 2005 after he sold with his dam at the last sale of Chris Walker before the herd was sold to AA Co. and what an outstanding bull he has become. He is a combination of the three great Westholme bulls, his sire is the great ETJ001 whose sire Dai 20 Hirashige is claimed as one of the top 15 bulls in Japan.  His dam is by ETJ003 who in turn was out of a daughter of the high milk and muscle bull ETJ002.

Z278 has grown into a big bull, his weight at the highest being almost 1000 kg., and he is a frame 8. He has been widely used in Australia, North American and Mexico with great results for not only is Z278 the top carcass weight bull in the 2014 Research EBV's but he is a trait leader in growth, milk, testicle size and EMA.

We have had many repeat customers buying Z278 semen and all reports of marbling carcass results have been above expectation given that he is a high growth, high milk bull. I just heard recently that he is hopefully a curve bending bulls that can perform in every trait.

He has a Fullblood Terminal Index of $277 which means that his input into a joining should give the breeder an extra $277 return on the average carcass he produces.

Added to that Z278 is AA in the SCD test which test for the fat which melts at a lower temperature and is higher in health values.  He has tested free of all genetic disorders and at 10 years of age and after many years of natural service is still very sound and fit.

Z278 was the sire of the wining carcass in the 2014 Branded Beef Competition - Grass Fed Class.
