Selection and Breeding Process

Over a period of decades, expert Japanese farmers have honed their cultivation techniques to ensure that their cows develop evenly marbled fat deposits and do not build tense, tough meat.

Wagyu breed is pure and not mixed with any other breeds. The calf was born and raised at special breeders. Each calf has a unique “birth certificate”, easily traced back to date of birth, bloodline and origin. After 7-10 months, the calfs are auctioned and raised by a special farm until they reach 30 months. 

Motobu Beef Farm Cattle

Contrary to popular belief, Wagyu are not routinely massaged, serenaded with classical music (at least not daily). However, Wagyu farmers do practice the most sophisticated technique of cattle raising. The cattle were given plenty of room with “sterilized” living quarters, fed three times per day with high-energy ingredients such as hay, fermented cereal feed, and clean water. 

A stress-free environment is one of the most important factors of cattle raising. Okinawa located in Southern-most of Japan is the only prefecture in the whole country with sub-tropical climate. Motobu Wagyu cows live in more relaxed and stress free grazing and warmer weather environments compared to other Wagyu breeds in Japan. This makes the quality of Motobu beef even more unique and yields better quality.
