100% Fullblood Wagyu
Double 8 Cattle Company is one of only a handful of farms raising 100% Fullblood Wagyu in the United States. 100% Fullblood Wagyu differ from most Wagyu being raised in the States, which often fall into the categories of Crossbred (F1, F2, F3) or Purebred (F4). The term "American Wagyu" has been adopted as marketing term for Wagyu beef that is Crossbred or Purebred Wagyu.
At Double 8 Cattle Company, we only raise 100% Fullblood Japanese Black Wagyu. Our cattle are direct descendants of Japanese Wagyu with unmixed ancestry. They are certified and registered with the American Wagyu Association, and their DNA can traced to their original ancestors in Japan. Our Wagyu have never been crossbred with other cattle breeds, such as Angus.
