UPDATE: It’s Time!

As we announced last week, the confluence of current world events and our own advancing ages have finally given us that little push and we are looking at retirement. We have already put our business into virtual hibernation and our herd is happily “resting” in the Western District of Victoria. I say resting, but many of our girls are busy making more babies, due over the coming weeks and months. UPDATE: In fact, most of our pregnant girls have already dropped their calves and the rest will probably arrive before you finish reading this sentence!
Sadly, our magnificent senior bull has gone to the pastures in Heaven, but we still have quite a lot of his semen stored.
Our business is ready to answer the call back to action in future months, but we are prepared to sell the herd in the meantime. We have a great donor herd with fantastic flush histories, and younger girls ready to breed, or young calves and heifers, all in prime condition. Our elite bull, Chokyori 1713, with a marble score of +1.5, boasts some of the best and most popular genetics in his background. If your herd needs an injection of good Wagyu genetics, this might be the place to find a bargain. You’ll find our prices are very reasonable (as are we) – especially depending whether you want one or all of our dear ladies and gents. Please contact us if you are interested in any of our animals. Semen and embryos are also available – check out our list, there is a surprising range…
UPDATE: Some of our stock has already gone, but we have added some new names so please peruse the list carefully. You never know what surprises we might have…

  • Who Are We?

    Lake Wagyu has been involved in the Wagyu industry since 1997 when, even in those early days, we could see the enormous potential for the breed to achieve great advances in the Australian cattle industry as a whole. Indeed, there is every reason to believe that Wagyu genetics will improve the entire world beef herd. Read more about Lake Wagyu

  • Our Credo

    We stand by our original belief that Wagyu seed stock genetics, infused into Australian cattle, will gradually improve the national herd by at least one or two marble scores over time. And given more time, it will inevitably follow that the world herd will just HAVE to improve too!
    Our motto, “If it was easy, everyone would do it!” has been proven correct over and over. Read more about Our Credo

News 2017


We took the opportunity recently to visit our fantastic South African agency at Embryo Plus. Our first visit to South Africa, so there was a lot to take in and think about this amazing country. I thought it might be similar to Australia – I thought, heat and dry red country, has to be like us. And it is similar in many ways, but in many other ways it is soooo different. They still have their work cut out politically for a few years yet, but over time the world better watch out, because South Africa is on its way!

And that is also true of the Wagyu industry there, which is so like the Australian industry was say, fifteen years ago. However, hopefully they will not have to face some of those earth-shattering changes that our industry went through over the years. No doubt they will face their own unique challenges, but they have the will, the drive and the people to get them to the other side in good order.

We were blown away by Embryo Plus and the work done there. It was wonderful to finally put faces to the names and voices we have been dealing with for the past decade and to meet with some of the great pioneers who have been buying our seedstock. We visited farms throughout the Transvaal (doesn’t that sound so exotic!?) and even flew down to Capetown to visit (I have to say it) THE most beautiful farm I have ever seen. It was strange to be able to recognise the cattle and identify from which donor or sire the calves had come, so far from home.

The hospitality we were shown was incredible. We don’t have a culture of “guest houses” for visitors in this country – best we seem to be able to do is a bed and breakfast and you’re on your own for dinner! Not so in South Africa. There, nothing but the best … and the food, the hospitality, the amenities: just amazing. We cannot thank them enough.

Please have a look at some photographs that will speak better than I can.

Merry Christmas everyone.
