Wagyu cattle registrations are growing at 50% each year in the UK as consumers are purchasing Wagyu beef because of it's tenderness,juiciness and special taste.
We at the association would like to see more smaller beef farmers take up producing these very special animals to meet the ever growing demand for Wagyu beef.
