‘Wagyu’ translates simply as ‘Japanese cattle’. And under this umbrella term are four official Wagyu breeds: the Japanese Black, the Japanese Brown, the Japanese Poll and the Japanese Shorthorn.
Kyushu Black cattle are blessed with the sun and natural surroundings of a warm tropical Kyushu Island. There are four different breeds of Wagyu cattle: Japanese Black, Japanese Brown, Japanese Shorthorn, and Japanese Polled; Japanese Black cattle comprise about 90% of the Wagyu cattle breeds. Japanese Black cattle from Kagoshima / Miyazaki Prefecture are the most numerous in Japan, and are marketed under the brand name “Kagoshima (Black) Beef” and “Miyazaki (Black) Beef”. Both of breeds we originally call them “Sakura Wagyu” in U.K.
