For centuries, the Japanese kept their Wagyu genetics under tight control, not releasing them to the world until the late 20th century. Wagyu beef cattle are now being bred and farmed in Australia to meet the international demand for this wonderfully succulent and tender beef.
Since 1994, Stockyard has been Australia’s leading exporter of Wagyu beef. Stockyard sources Wagyu feeders from its own breeding program and through strong alliances with professional Wagyu breeding operations. Stockyard Wagyu beef is derived from animals with genetics from Crossbred Wagyu F1 50% to Wagyu Fullblood 100%. The cattle are fed in our feedlot on a diet exclusively designed and managed by our nutritionist.
Stockyard Wagyu are independently graded and processed under our strict supervision to ensure production and quality specifications are met.
