A little about Wagyu
Wagyu is a breed of cattle native to Japan. Characteristically, Wagyu beef is highly marbled. This means that the muscle is finely interspersed with monounsaturated fat. This marbling gives the beef its ultimate taste and tenderness. When cooked, the marbling is absorbed into the muscle and gives the meat its fine palatability and flavour. This breed is the foundation for the premium quality of Brant Lake Wagyu beef.
Bringing Wagyu to Alberta
Brant Lake Cattle is family–owned and operated. The original Wagyu herd was established in 1993. It started with 19 wagyu cows and full blood Wagyu bulls. Since 1993 , the herd has expanded to a Wagyu/Angus cross herd using predominately Black and Red Angus cows and Full blood Wagyu Bulls.
They have since grown our numbers allowing us to share with other consumers this distinctive quality of beef. As passionate cattle producers, Brant Lake Cattle are committed to refining their Wagyu cross herd to result in a superior tasting, consistent and healthy beef. Along with partner producers, they raise this Wagyu/Angus cross herd and purebred Wagyu herd to bring consumers some of the best beef in the world.
