Beef production in Japan


Proceedings of the Australian Society of Animal Production 19: 13-15
Beef production in Japan
The structure of the beef industry in Japan is discussed. Over 65% of beef produced in Japan is a byproduct of the dairy industry, based on Holstein cattle. The remainder is from Wagyu (Japanese Improved breeds, derived from Japanese Native (= Wagyu)) breeds, which include Japanese Black, Japanese Brown and a number of minor breeds. The 2.8 million beef cattle (including Holsteins raised for beef) are raised as on 221 000 holdings, the av. number per holding being 12.6 animals in 1991.
