Why Waitaha Wagyu Beef
Wagyu yields superior quality, tender meat, with softer fats that enhance the meat flavour. Thus both full blood and Wagyu-infused beef vastly surpasses other brands.
Wagyu is a unique breed that amongst its key attributes (other than the exquisite marbled beef quality) a high calving ease, high fertility rates, the ability to adapt to a wide range of environments, a very calm and resilient temperament in the feedlot environment and a high carcass yield (dressing percentage).
Also, the economic value derived from each animal, is well above that of pastoral cattle. Marbling is the most reliable component of meat taste and tenderness. Japanese consumers recognize this and are prepared to pay a premium for highly marbled meat.
