The Incredible Story of Blackmore Chiyotake Y377
Blackmore Chiyotake Y377 is a prolific dam of bulls that have returned to our breeding program.
She is sired by Itozurudoi TF151, her dam is Blackmore Chiyotake W034 sired by Itoshigenami TF148, her grand-dam is Takeda U542, sired by Itoshigefuji TF147, her great grand-dam is sired by Itohana 2 and the foundation cow exported from Japan by Takeda Farms is Chiyotake 8A, sired by Itomichi.
For us this was the perfect stack of sires that produce big, strong, robust breeders with deep heart room, great spring and angle of rib to give a strong constitution with the cow to produce ample milk and to calve annually. To add to this, the Chiyotake cows have a wide thurl and correct setting allowing for calving ease, good feet and legs, correct hip and pin setting, ensuring a strong loin.
Blackmore Chiyotake Y377 has one of the highest GEBV for our breeding cows.
