The breed in general

Wagyu cattle originate from Japan.

Color:

Wagyu cattle have a single-colored black or red to red-brown coat. Black animals’ hooves are dark brown to black; red animals’ hooves are light.

Polled status:

The horns are little to moderately bent and have a strong horn onset. There are also genetically polled animals.

Body:

The medium-sized cattle have a light head, strong fore hand of good depth with lots of harmony, and almost horizontal, slightly sloped rumps. The animals have fine, dry extremities with strong, relatively big hooves. They show a harmonious muscularity with good, stretched haunches and wide, well-muscled shoulder. Their coat is short and straight.

Production traits:

The calm and good-natured Wagyu cattle are especially suitable for pasture grazing. The female animals are even ready for service at the age of 15 months, males already at the age of 12 months. They have very good fertility and a calving interval of 365 days. They calve continually and easily. They have good maternal qualities and sufficient milk to raise their own calves. The most important attribute of the breed is the production of excellent carcases with extremely high marbling degree of the meat through very high percentage of intramuscular fat.
