Why breed Wagyu

Wagyu is a unique breed that has amongst its key attributes, other than the exquisite marbled beef quality, a high calving ease, excellent (docile) temperament, resilient in the feedlot and has a high (dressing percentage) carcass yield. Most important is the economic value derived from each animal, which is currently 100% more than pastoral cattle, sold at either the farm gate or as a long fed carcass.

Wagyu breeding requires patience as it takes time to build up a viable herd and end markets, this then becomes your own economic moat.

How do I breed it ?

Rich in traditions of Japanese agriculture, Wagyu has long been a mystery worth pursuing.

All Fullblood Wagyu registered with the Australian Wagyu Association are direct descendants of animals from Japan that have been meticulously documented and nurtured to produce progeny abundant in marbling or Intra Muscular Fat (IMF).

Latest advances in genetic and genomic analysis together with concentrated breeding skills have unlocked these secrets into a world of seedstock and commercial cattle breeding available to all producers. Read More »
