Many people consider Wagyu beef to be the most tender and flavorful beef in the world. The cattle used to produce this beef are docile with good temperaments, and they are known for their intense intramuscular marbling, high fertility rates and ease of calving. Why wouldn’t a cattle farmer want to raise Wagyu?

The internet is flush with information about Wagyu, some of it is accurate and some of it is misleading. This handbook is designed to help breeders decide whether or not raising this breed is the right choice for them. Peer-reviewed journals and academic textbooks were used to create this handbook, and world-renowned Wagyu experts were consulted. There are good opportunities for producers who are informed, careful and realistic. There are many variances within the Wagyu breeds and bloodlines; as well as differences between short and long-fed animals, and results of different feeding protocols.

Wagyu are very special animals; they are considered a national treasure of Japan. I hope you enjoy and appreciate them as much as I do.
