Wagyu Origins

Wagyu (pronounced ‘wag-you’)

Wagyu is a breed of cattle native to Japan. The Japanese word Wagyu can be translated to mean Japanese cow  – as “wa” means Japanese and “gyu” means cow.

Some people may be familiar with ‘Kobe beef’, which is world famous for its quality. Kobe beef is simply Wagyu that comes from the Kobe region in Japan.
Characteristically, Wagyu beef is highly marbled. This means that the muscle is finely interspersed with monounsaturated fat. This marbling gives the beef its ultimate taste and tenderness. When cooked, the marbling is absorbed into the muscle and gives the meat its fine palatability and flavour.

This breed is the foundation for the premium quality of BRANT LAKE WAGYU beef.
