Well, we did it! We scoured the earth for a bull that would answer the primal scream we are hearing from our clients – Marbling!! Give us Marbling!!!! Tajima, we want Tajima…
And all the time, he was right under our very noses! We journeyed far into the Gippsland hills, waaay up into the goldfields and there he was: Chokyori 1713 virtually standing in a vineyard and standing out from his Wagyu and Akushi mates, staring at a million dollar view and grazing on the best pasture Gippsland has to offer. Don’t ask for directions, I still don’t know how we found our way to him even now. He was truly a hidden treasure!
It was love at first sight, and we know you are going to drool over his pedigree, that boasts over 82% Tajima bloodline, what with Michifuku and a double up of Suzitani, not to mention Itoshigenami on the other side!
He’s very young as yet, but as soon as we can decently start collecting his semen through our friends at Total Livestock Genetics, we plan to make his recessive-free genetics available world wide. So start queuing folks, if you have a “B” spot available in your rotation or want to produce F1 calves, this is the fellow for you!
Lake Wagyu is a division of Bullocks Bow Bend Pastoral Services, and our aim is to produce the best Wagyu cattle possible, using the best available genetics to get the most profitable results from this fabulous (in the real sense) breed.
Our philosophy is to put the best people together with the most modern methods and create a working relationship that benefits everybody. We are in partnership with many dedicated cattle breeders all over Victoria and NSW who are raising top class stud Wagyu bulls and heifers from our transferred embryos. We work with the best technicians and veterinarians to give our lovely recipient ladies every chance to do justice to their prize Wagyu calves.

Who Are We?
Lake Wagyu has been involved in the Wagyu industry since 1997 when, even in those early days, we could see the enormous potential for the breed to achieve great advances in the Australian cattle industry as a whole. Indeed, there is every reason to believe that Wagyu genetics will improve the entire world beef herd. Read more about Lake Wagyu
We stand by our original belief that Wagyu seed stock genetics, infused into Australian cattle, will gradually improve the national herd by at least one or two marble scores over time. And given more time, it will inevitably follow that the world herd will just HAVE to improve too!
Our motto, “If it was easy, everyone would do it!” has been proven correct over and over. Read more about Our Credo
