TWIN OAKS FARM
QUALITY WAGYU CATTLE
PROVIDING THE NEXT GENERATIONS OF GENETICS
These are the girls that one might call the backbone to the breeding operation here at Twin Oaks as they
are the Wagyu donors providing the next generations of genetics! Some of them are currently active
parts in our flushes, while others might have been retired, but all of them are a large part of our herd.
This list is constantly changing as the next generations are being born, so don’t be surprised if someone
hasn’t made it officially to the list yet.
Makena will always have a special place at our farm; not only because you can pet her as long as grain is involved, she is spoiled rotten, or the fact that she is halter broke and will let Mady ride on her like a ‘horsey’, but she was the beginning to our Fullblood Wagyu program. Her breeding is strong in the Tajima line as she is a daughter of MFC Sanjirou 3-39, which is a direct son of World K’s Sanjirou and her dam is Bay Shige Miki 118 whose pedigree traces back to Hisako. She herself was shown at the 2016 World Beef Expo in WI and she became our first donor cow in the spring of 2017.
TNO KELLEY 18D
Kelley is technically the first Fullblood Wagyu we purchased in the spring of 2016; however she was still a developing embryo that was due to calve that fall to her recipient dam. As we anxiously awaited her arrival, Mady often told people that we had ‘a steak moo moo inside a milk moo moo’s
belly’. With this being our first experience with embryo’s, we were a bit nervous while we waited for her arrival and have been proud of her ever since she was born. Her breeding is strong in the Tajima line as she is the daughter of JVP Fukutsuru 068 crossed with WSI Michihira. She was our first donor cow for the fall herd and the second donor cow overall for the farm. She is also the dam to TNO Kita 34F which is the steer that titled us as the 2021 Grand Champion in the Wagyu Triple
Crown Steak Challenge!
These are the boys you will see out in the fields making sure that our calving seasons are packed full of
fun! They might be the second string team to all the frozen genetics work that we do around the farm,
but don’t let that fool you as these guys are all still a very important part to our operation!

TNO Hirashigetayasu 7F
TNO Hirashigetayasu 7F is the big man around the farm and has truly been a stand-out since the day he was born! Stemming from an embryo, Jason was first impressed with his size and growth that he exhibited as just a young bull calf, which is not as surprising being a son of the great Hirashigetayasu J2351 (also known as 001). Then as TNO 7F continued to mature, the growth traits stayed but also came his exceptional temperament that he exhibited in the fields. The next hurdle will be his carcass data that is still forth coming as his calves are still developing for processing, but if his full brother is any indication, then TNO 7F could be the full package. He is the first bull that we had semen collected on as Jason wanted to ensure that we would have his genetics available at our farm for quite a while.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Although our herd has mainly moved away from the Angus breed these days to focus more on the Fullblood Wagyu’s, it would not be right if we didn’t honor the one that started it all for us in this cattle category. Although we do still have a handful of registered Angus girls left at the farm, which we only use as recipient mothers, along with a group of Wagyu/Angus cross cattle as well. We also have a few farms in our area that have purchased our Angus girls over the years, so we know that our genetics are still out there producing cattle for their operations.
VPI Shadoe 7T30
Although she is no longer with us, except in rug form, Shadoe will always have a special place at our farm; not only because she was one of the select few you could walk up to in the pasture and pet, but she was the first registered cow we ever purchased and she really started this farming
adventure. We were blessed with many great daughters from her over her many years she had with us. She herself is a direct daughter of the Global Pathfinder ‘SS Objective T510 0T26’ and she is from the Shadoe cow line tracing back to the popular Champion Hill Donor ‘Shadoe 1357’. During her time, she ranked among the top 10% in the breed for calving ease and birth weight.
