Wagyu Beef was introduced into Australia in 1991. Wagyu is described as the highest quality beef in the world, and is renowned for its distinctive marbling and flavour. Wagyu beef also contains a higher percentage of Omega 3 and Omega 6, and its incr eased marbling enhances the ratio of healthier mono-saturated fats compared to regular beef.
Tajima Cross bred Wagyu beef was launched by Andrews Meat Industries in 2007. The brand has flourished both domestically and internationally and is now offered to restaurants across the country and is seen on high end restaurant and hotel menus in over 15 different countries.
Tajima is the most famous of all the Wagyu bloodlines, originating from the Hyogo prefecture in Japan. They are generally smaller framed with slower growth rate but produce excellent meat eating quality with a large eye muscle and superior marbling. They are thought to be ideal for the production of F1 or Crossbred cattle.
