Wagyu cattle are docile animals that produce the best flavor and tenderness naturally than any other cattle breed.
Originally they had a smaller frame and look more like a dairy cow with a thin back end, so a lot of ranchers avoided them for many years. Wagyu cattle also feed out slower so there are more input costs.
Over the years genetics has been utilized to add weight, marbling, milking abilities and other desirable traits.
The cattle disperse fat intramuscularly better than most cattle that deposit the additional fat in the tail head or brisket.
This intramuscular fat dispersion or marbling, is the secret to the great taste.
