The history of Wagyu – the Japanese Beef breed

Recently I made a mistake thinking that I had heard that the famous Wagyu beef breed from Japan was based on Jersey cows.

The breed was based on the native Japanese cattle crossed with Korean and some European breeds.

The importation of beef breeds stopped in 1910.
