This is 100% Fullblood Wagyu which we are getting a grade of 9-9+. Japanese Wagyu is known to have very fine marbling which makes the beef as tender as butter. Set within a majestic highland landscape, Blackford offers rich, fertile Perthshire grassland on which all our herds graze and much of the forage they eat during the winter is cut from our organic land. Low energy feed is a vital part of raising premium Wagyu beef and our all-natural “Highland Wagyu” blend was prepared with a livestock nutritionist and is supplemented with organic Seaweed. In addition, our females are given Omega 3 to enhance fertility and wellbeing.
To create the best marbling, we condition our cattle; we handle them with care (the use of sticks is banned), keeping them happy and content. We’ve created a stress-free environment by investing in ‘Wagyu Central’ – three huge zen-like buildings to house the animals.
We respect each animal from nose to tail right through the life cycle. We pamper our Wagyu cattle and that ethos continues with our luxury Wagyu beef. I personally inspect each carcass to ensure the Wagyu beef’s premium quality and to keep improving.
