American Wagyu Association

Taste Excellence

The American Wagyu Association promotes and upholds the standards for Wagyu beef, the finest quality of beef available in the United States. Highly prized for their rich flavor, these cattle produce arguably the finest beef in the world. Wagyu cattle's genetic predisposition yields a beef that contains a higher percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids than typical beef.
