Is Wagyu Beef New?

Wagyu beef can be traced back to ancient Japan, where it was carefully developed over many generations by Japanese farmers. However, Wagyu is relatively new to the American market. Americans first got their taste for imported Wagyu in the mid-1970s. Wagyu’s distinct flavor and tenderness created a growing demand, inspiring American ranchers to start producing this sought-after beef.
