JDH Wagyu


“The Big Event” Complete & Total Dispersal Sale

Welcome to the JDH Wagyu Big Event Sale. My wife (Galynn) and I would like to thank you for helping us make this sale a memorable event. We are excited, but yet somewhat saddened to be able to offer you in its entirety the complete and total dispersal of JDH Wagyu. We are over 24 years into our Wagyu business venture and it is now time to make some life changes as we experience the circle of life moments. We have decided to step away from the cattle business and put our main focus on our children, grandchildren and remain consistent with our faith. We, along with our very able team members, have done all we can to create the finest and very best Wagyu product that we could.

In this “The Big Event” Sale you will have the opportunity to select from all segments of our program. There are the elite genetics, the production cow calf pairs, fall bred females, spring breds, open heifers, herd sire prospects, commercial females bred for an F1 Wagyu calf, semen and embryos. All of our inventory will sell in its entirety. In this event we are hoping to bring all segments of the breed together to one event that showcases everything that is good in Wagyu. Diversity has been my goal in the breeding of these sale animals. Particular attention was paid to the inbreeding coefficients specific to the ABCD breeding method in most cases. We welcome anyone’s inquiry in regards to the sale and we are more than excited to show you what the JDH Wagyu program has created over the years. Come to the farm and take a look at our program prior to the sale if you wish. We will showcase the sale offering via a video platform on Superior and Liveauctions.tv. If there is anything that anyone in the JDH program or any member of the Wagyu365 team can do, then please feel free to call any of us.
– Sincerely, Joe and Galynn Hoye, JDH Wagyu

Important Notice and Disclaimer

It is very important that you appreciate when viewing the AWA database that the information contained on the AWA database, including but not limited to pedigree, DNA information, Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) and Index values, is based on data supplied by members and/or third parties.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information reported through AWA, AWA officers and employees assume no responsibility for its content, use or interpretation. AWA disclaims all liability (including without limitation, liability in negligence) for all expenses, losses, damages and costs you may incur as a result of the use by you of the data on this AWA database and the information supplied by ABRI and AGBU being inaccurate or incomplete in any way for any reason.

Regarding EBVs and Index values, it is very important to appreciate, and you need to be aware that:

  • EBVs are derived using Wagyu Single Step BREEDPLAN technology developed independently by the Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit (AGBU), using the information contained within the AWA database.
  • AGBU is a joint venture of NSW Department of Primary Industries and the University of New England, which receives funding for this purpose from Meat and Livestock Australia Limited.
  • AWA relies solely on advice provided by AGBU and ABRI in accepting Wagyu Single Step BREEDPLAN software.
  • EBVs published in Wagyu Single Step BREEDPLAN are estimates of genetic potential of individual animals and may not reflect the raw animal phenotype.
  • EBVs can only be directly compared to other EBVs calculated in the same monthly Wagyu Group BREEDPLAN analysis.

Regarding pedigree and DNA testing results submitted to the AWA, it is very important to appreciate, and you need to be aware that:

  • Pedigree and DNA data submitted and supplied to AWA may have errors in it which cannot be detected without further DNA testing.
  • Technology may have advanced since a particular test was undertaken so that previous inaccuracies which were not detectable are now able to be detected by current testing technology.
  • AWA estimates that less than 1% of the pedigree entries, ownership or breeding details in the AWA Herdbook may have errors or which may be misleading. For this reason, users ought to consider if they need to obtain independent testing of the relevant animal (if possible) to ensure that the data is accurate.

Regarding prefectural content, it is very important to appreciate, and you need to be aware that:

  • Prefectural content is based on the estimation of prefectural origin from Japanese breeding records of 201 foundation sires and 168 foundation dams.  As genotype-based parent verification is not used in Japan, and full Japanese registration certificates are not available for all foundation animals, exact prefectural composition for these sires and dams cannot be validated.
  • The calculation of prefectural content for Australian Herdbook animals relies on the accuracy of pedigree records and DNA samples provided by AWA members.
  • The reporting of prefectural content for animals within the AWA Herdbook relies on the calculation provided by ABRI.

If you consider that you do not understand or appreciate the nature and extent of the data provided on this website or the EBVs of a particular animal, then AWA strongly recommends that you seek independent expert advice.
