What is Japanese Wagyu?
Wagyu is Japanese beef cattle and raised in Japan. Japan is the only country in the world that registers every head of purebred potential Wagyu stock. Calves are given examinations including paper documents, individual identification number processing and recording of any abnormalities within 4 months of being born. If they meet requirement, they are officially registered as Wagyu at 6 months old. That registration traces the calf back three generations though a clearly defined pedigree including parents, grandparents and great grandparents and this has been since 14th century.
