Re: Wagyu Beef

I think that Wagyu may be growing in popularity here in the USA.  At least I know I am hearing more about them.  


If a person has a lot of back pasture where they can hide ugly cattle, and plenty of time to figure out how to market them; they are probably quite profitable.  


The American Wagyu Association has a very nice website; however, I think that it is funny that even they appear to be very aware of how ugly Wagyu cattle are as the main website picture is of a beautiful pasture with low lighting that shows a herd of Wagyu cattle in the distance.  Even in this beautiful setting it is still obvious that the cattle are ugly.  I did not find any other photos of the cattle, although there are several nice photos of Wagyu meat.  The association obviously knows what sells.
