First Wagyu oxen ready for Namibian market!

We are excited to announce that Desert Wagyu's first two full-blood Japanese Black Wagyu oxen have been offloaded at the Abattoir on Friday 11 June 2021. They weigh close to one ton each and we look forward to announcing their marble scores early in the upcoming week.

Desert Wagyu is proud of the good quality breeding and feeding principles we implement. We strive to provide quality, and also committed to trust and transparency. Thus Wagyu South Africa will support us with training and coaching on objective carcass grading. We took hands with Hartlief who offered to host a wagyu carcass block-man training session which will be open to other butchers to attend. We look forward to great success stories leading up to our launch.

Get ready for your ultimate eating experience as Desert Wagyu beef will be available at Hartlief Shop & Bistro in Windhoek very soon. Hartlief Shop & Bistro is the store of choice for our launch and we will make our whole product range available at their store in Windhoek. Be sure to visit it after launch date has been announced so that you don't miss out on the internationally sought after Wagyu beef!

Follow us to stay updated as we go through carcass grading, carcass processing, packaging and bringing the product to market.
