OUR FAMILY TREE
HOW IT ALL STARTED MEET LEWY
Heisker Lewis or ‘Lewy’, named from his tag number L001 (it looked to us like it spelt Loo-i and the name stuck), was the first fullblood wagyu calf born at Heisker Farm.
Lewy was the result of our Embryo Transfer (ET) program, where 100% Fullblood Wagyu embryos are transferred into recipient cows. This means that even though his genetics are 100% Fullblood Wagyu, he was born to a Murray Grey surrogate mother.
TAKE A LOOK AT LEWY TODAY
Lewy’s bloodlines are traceable back to the original Fullblood Wagyu foundation sires exported out of Japan to America in the 1990s. The combination of his genetics indicate that he will produce large framed animals with good carcase traits.
Now two years old, this young bull is at work in the paddock with the heifers and cows producing our first cross (F1) of Crossbred 50% Wagyu cattle.
