Welcome to Wagyu of Alabama.

Wagyu pronounced “Way-gyu or Wag-yoo” literally means Japanese Cattle. Wagyu Cattle are genetically predisposed to intsense marbling. This breed produces high percentages of oleginous (oil) unsaturated fat (good fat).

Compared to other breeds, Wagyu beef yields a higher percentage of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Due to this high marbling and quality, Wagyu Cattle typically demand a high price – as much as $300/lb for the highest quality beef.

The Japanese quality grade is based on a 12 point scale, A1 to A12. US quality grades are Prime, Choice, and Select. The US hightest quality grade, Prime, will fall into the A5 to A6 range. The Beef produced by Wagyu of Alabama grade A8 to A9.
