Prime 360 Beef is made up of 7 stout breeds, including: Wagyu/Akaushi, Red and Black Angus, Polled Red and Black Simmental, Polled Shorthorn Durham, and Aberdeen. North American breeds are utilized to enhance commercial use for phenotype and acceptance. The base breed is Red Wagyu which are more known for thickness and fleshing ability than Black Wagyu. Our donors are now 87.5% up to 93.75% Japanese and POLLED, plus standouts from their ET offspring!
Why Japanese? These breeds are the highest marbling cattle in the world. They also have some of the tightest udders that are also level floored with ideal teat size. Additionally, these are some of the highest fertility and longevity cattle. The resulting composite is whatever breed is utilized in the embryo transplant program.
What are the requirements for Prime 360 Beef sires?
The most important trait is that they have to have the EPD for high marbling. Then, we study his dam or daughters to ensure they have ideal udders. Prime 360 considers udders, fertility and disposition to be high priority for bulls to be considered for future use, no matter which breed is selected to utilize. Selection criteria will be a combination of ultrasound and EPD’s. Those selected will be embryo transplanted and will continue to be grown in numbers to satisfy growing interest.
TKCC P360B HIGH PRIME
Introducing TKCC P360B HIGH PRIME (ASA #3083791), one of the highest IMF purebred Simmental bulls we have found. We were impressed by the many attributes this unique Purebred Simmental bull could bring to our program. We are breeding a large amount of Simmental to our Japanese donors to enhance the marketability of Prime for our customers calves. He excels in front end cleanliness, tight sheath, dimension and overall length. It doesn’t hurt that he is a full ET brother to the champion pen of 3 Simmental in 2016 at the National Western. He has the disposition of a kitten and his dam is thought to be one of the elite donors in the breed. His sire, Pilgrim, does not lack credibility either! Another point in our quest was to lower the frame somewhat in our ET program and with his 5.5 frame and 6.87 % IMF offspring, we should be headed in a direction the Simmental breed has longed for.
CONNEALY SANDMAN (AAA #17889422) is a calving ease sire carefully selected by Prime 360 and Alta Beef. This bull is an extreme marbling improver with lots of performance, eye appeal and correct feet and hoof shape.
