Our Custom Feeding Regime – 20 to 32 months of age
Our custom feeding final stage is run from our Freestate farms near Marquard.
Finishing Wagyu cattle the Japanese way is a process that that been in operations for hundreds of years. It is a specialized custom ration design from many different opinions, overseas visits, ancient methodology and the lastest technical expertise. Our rations have taken us 3 years to define and its probably and ongoing process to become more and more efficient.
We receive cattle from our backgrounding fase at 20 months of age and feed them a further 12 months in this the final stage of production. Between 32 – 36 months our first cattle are now ready for harvesting.
The 2,5 years hosting and feeding these cattle are by far largest portion of the total cost of this production process. It is a privilege to work with these fantastic animals that are predisposed to give us such a wonderful end product.
