Is American Wagyu the same as Japanese Wagyu?

If your American Wagyu beef is labeled ‘Fullbood,’ it is genetically identical to the Wagyu beef produced in Japan. If your Wagyu lacks the fullblood label, it is a hybrid of Japanese and European cattle. These modified forms of Wagyu beef were developed in the late 1990s as a way to produce something similar to authentic Japanese Wagyu in the face of export bans. These hybrid forms of Wagyu are not as boldly flavored, nor as tender as fullblood varieties. Fareway Meat Market proudly carries Feddersen Fullblood Wagyu Beef, raised and produced in Iowa. This superior product offers you the authentic Japanese Wagyu experience that hybrid varieties simply can’t match.
