The Spring-Rock herd is born of some of the oldest and finest 100% full blood Wagyu originally imported to this country from Japan.
As our herd develops, we are maximizing its potential by keeping close track of herd statistics. We only select animals with good fertility, strong mothering skills and fine temperament. We provide the best atmosphere, feeding and care any herd could receive.
Creating a strong and healthy genetic line is a challenge with a breed of cattle as small in number as the Wagyu. It is in every respect a science. Dr. Sheila Patinkin meticulously studies the pedigrees used in our breeding program, seeking a preferred balance between the lines of Wagyu bred in America today.
Some of the top marbling bulls are contained within our heifers’ pedigrees. As our own herd develops, we are seeking a genetic diversity through varying the strains of Wagyu in our breeding program.
Our goal is to maintain the intense marbling of the meat without affecting other positive traits in the cattle. We watch for the effects of inbreeding to decrease the incidence of recessive genetic disease.
The herd at Spring-Rock Farm was born in 2009 with a calf crop of 13. After adding with a herd from Crescent Harbor Ranch in early 2010, the total count of heifers is now 28.
