What is Wagyu?
Wagyu translates literally to mean Japanese cow and in Japan they are considered a national treasure. Most Americans know of Wagyu as Kobe. In the 1970’s there were bulls that were imported to the United States from Japan and small amounts of imports continued until the 1990’s when Japan stopped all cattle exports. The Japanese declared that the cows were a national treasure and an export ban was put in place. There were less than 200 cows in total that arrived in the United States mostly black and red Wagyu with the black being the most prominent in the country.
