Having produced well known sires Kitahatsuhi 97/1, Peppermill Grove D139, Longford F E0241,
and Westholme Hiramichi Tsuru there is a track record for success with this family. Having said that, elite pedigreed females from this family are far and few between and thus extremely valuable. This is the best Kedaka/Tottori maternal line and is poised to show their genetic superiority for years to come. We are excited to be working with females from this family sired by elite Westholme bulls Hirashigetayasu 001, Hiramichi Tsuru, and B0039.
