A5 Hokkaido Wagyu also known as 'Snow Beef', comes from northern Japan and is produced from Kuroge Washu Black Cattle.
This beef is fattier and sweeter than other wagyu varietals due to colder temperatures in the region. The icy climate of Hokkaido actually causes the cattle to produce extra thick coats of fur, which in turn, encourages even more luscious inter-muscular fat marbling.
Cattle are also fed a diet of primarily sweet corn, which the island of Hokkaido is famous for.
Wagyu is like Wine. Every region in Japan produces its own unique cattle from regional differences between the varying prefecture states.
