The Wagyu was introduced in 1991, and they are direct descendants of the Japanese Wagyu. With a stronger forequarter, they were developed as draught animals. Considering their softer fat composition, lack of additional hormones, and their year-long diet of grain, the Australian Wagyu from W. Black always offers the highest quality of meat with all the tenderness and flavor you expect from a top-notch steak.
