Fischer Farm has selected cattle from the Wagyu, Angus and Simmental breeds which produce F1 offspring that have a healthier fat profile and superior tenderness to other beef and are better suited for New England conditions and grass feeding.
NEWagyu is no less than 5/8 Registered Wagyu, tested for AA gene (Stearoyl-CA desaturase).
Wagyu is also higher in a type of fatty acid called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Wagyu beef contains about 30% more than other beef breeds. Foods that are naturally high in CLA have been shown to have fewer negative health effects (http://wagyu.org/breed-info/what-is-wagyu/).
NEWagyu is crossed with Angus and/or Simmental cattle that have been found to also contain the AA fat profile gene as well as having high tenderness ratings rivaling that of Wagyu.
