Australian Wagyu Forum

Founded in 2007, the aim of the Australian Wagyu Forum (AWF) is to provide objective information on the production of Japanese Black cattle, combining the resources of ‘Plain English’ access to specialist Japanese animal science, review of breed development initiatives outside Japan and extensive Australian Wagyu production experience.

Emphasis includes discussion of Japanese home market production models or techniques that may be adapted; and specialist Japanese production/genetics knowledge that is otherwise not readily accessible. The site is a neutral forum for local and international market/economic data for producers, related discussion, and provides continuously updated information on seedstock, genetics and services produced and marketed globally by the members.
