HISTORY OF THE WAGYU CATTLE
A quick History of Waygu Cattle: Wagyu cattle (the breeds that help make Kobe and Kobe Style beef) were naturally bred in isolation for several centuries. They are naturally predisposed to higher marbling and in the later centuries were carefully cultivated and bred to other breeds with superior marbling and texture with a goal in mind.
Pure Kobe is a Style of Beef…a way of raising the cattle, processing and so on. NO, they are NOT fed Sake!! It is used to rub their muscles down to relieve stiffness! They are fed special diets and pampered their entire lives in order to produce some of the most outstanding beef. Pure Kobe is nearly white due to the extreme marbling, it is sliced paper thin, seared briefly, and served at no more than 5 ounces. It is UNREAL!
Today in the United States after importing these breeds in the 1960’s via liquid nitrogen tanks and careful selection of breeding stock there are select bloodlines of Waygu breeding stock.
Our family has been raising Cattle for 120 years, we introduced a Wagyu to our herd 16 years ago. We breed our Wagyu to Black Baldie Cows (Hereford x Angus) and produce a higher marbling beef with superior texture to that of the typical Wagyu x Angus. The Hereford is the key to the mix, we have achieved some levels of Prime beef that are not on the normal scale, so we get pluses!
Our secret weapon is knowing the genetics and how to get the best out of them. Breeding and Feeding are key, it takes 2 to 3 years to produce a superior Wagyu Carcass! That is why not EVERY rancher can do this and take it from FARM to FORK. You must be a little bit crazy and beef needs to be as important as breathing! We do love our beef…
So, grab a steak or 3 and enjoy your supper! -
Love, the Beef Snob…
