The Wagyu breed began in Japan more than 2,000 years ago. These cattle were bred to labor. The selection process started with drought resistance and labor to pull farm equipment. It wasn’t until 1867 that the cattle began to be used for consumption. When they were, they were found to have incredible marbling from centuries of being bred to work. They are now renowned around the world for their incredible richness and marbling.
In 1976, four Wagyu bulls were brought to the US from Japan. In 1997 Japan designated Wagyu as a National Treasure and an export ban was put in place. In 2018 there were only around 5,000 full-blood Wagyu in America.
Less than 2% of US beef grades prime. 90% of Wagyu influenced beef in the US will grade prime or above. The coveted A5 grade is reserved mostly for full-blood Wagyu.
