Feeding

Blackmore Wagyu Beef has the goal to change the way we produce our Wagyu to set a new benchmark in animal welfare and sustainability. We have established a new standard, called eco-feeding® which will deliver a new benchmark for animal production.

Eco-feeding® is a multi-faceted standard that includes animal welfare and husbandry, environmental management, nutrition, food safety and product integrity.

Our cattle are raised on their mothers until they are weaned. After weaning our animals have access to pasture and fed our supplementary ration for 100+ days. Our animals are then finished for 600+ days on our secret feed ration in a low density lot feeding system.

Our secret feed ration is fully sustainable with natural feed commodities that are not usable for human consumption. Our objective is to feed our Wagyu animals natural commodities that are by-products of human food production.

Our eco-feeding® standard ensures we have full control over the animals humane management and welfare. The eco-feeding® standard implements the maximum standards for animal production, far exceeding industry requirements.
