The American Wagyu AssociationAnd for what it's worth Wagyu is not a breed !
Yes there are many that disagree.The American Wagyu Association
The Australian Wagyu Association
The Canadian Wagyu Association
Would all disagree with you.
Saying Wagyu is not a breed is like saying Red Angus and Red Holsteins are not breeds.
Technically Washu not Wagyu is what cows are called in Japan.
Beware of the American Akaushi Association
In July of 2021 they were sued and ordered to pay 30 million dollars to Twinwood Cattle Company in Texas. More than 1/2 of the registered Akaushi cattle Twinwood purchased from HeartBrand between 2009-2016 could not be DNA verified Akaushi parentage.
The two Akaushi Board Members Ronald Breeman and his son Jordan Breeman were also chairman and president of HeartBrand.
It's my guess that the Breemans maybe might be the source of spreading the misinformation that Wagyu is not a breed.
Name 2 other than the Breemans.Yes there are many that disagree.
No reds are American Akaushi not Wagyu.But regardless you can't argue with DNA. Japanese Red and Japanese Black are different breeds but both " classified" Wagyu.
Were you aware of the American Akaushi Association being found guilty of fraud and losing the 30 million dollar lawsuit?All of our cattle are registered and have dna tested for parent verification, scd, etc..
Except our crosses.
What I don't understand is why Breemans sold registered Akaushi and guaranteed DNA test when they knew it was a lie.Yes.
What I don't understand is why they would buy if parents were not verified.
