Wagyu beef has a fatty acid profile similar to olive oil and salmon- when you eat Wagyu, you're getting the healthy fats that are good for the skin, hair, nails, digestion, and heart health. Premium Dakota Beef is packed with your Omega 3's and has a remarkably high Omega 3:6 ratio. It has up to 300% more monounsaturated fat than normal beef due to the marbling content, which is why the meat melts at a lower temperature. More specifically, it's high in oleic acid which is shown to have anti-carcinogenic properties and aids in cancer prevention. When you're eating Wagyu, you're putting your body and your health first. Not to mention that with our management practices, you're also eating a product that's free of GMOs, antibiotics, and hormones. Since our cattle are well-cared for, you're eating an animal that had a great life on a small farm in a stress-free environment.
Because of the marbling gene that's highly up-regulated in Wagyu cattle (which is extremely dependent on them being in a low-stress environment), Wagyu beef is intensely marbled. This factor, in addition to the fat being less saturated, creates a buttery flavor and aroma. You'll notice as you cook the meat that it's more of a delicacy than anything else. The incredible flavor leaves your mouth watering after every bite!
This one is a total game-changer for me! As I actually grew up not eating beef, the hardest thing to get used to when I did start eating it was the tough texture. However, this is not the case with Wagyu. Wagyu is known for "melting in your mouth"! This is literally what our customers say and it makes it such a different eating experience.
It also makes it much more kid and senior-friendly. My Grandma, who has a really hard time eating due to teeth problems, hardly ever eats beef anymore. When she does, it's always ground because that's all she can handle. But when I was visiting for Christmas and brought some Wagyu steaks for the family to try, she actually ate a filet!! It was so exciting. And we have the same response from children who have a hard time with beef simply because of the texture. Kids love this stuff!
Premium Dakota Beef's cattle are born out on pasture in May and September to minimize stress for the cows and their calves. The spring and fall are when the weather is most encouraging for young, vulnerable calves. The calves stay with their mothers out on pasture until they're about 800 lbs. At that point, they're weaned and put into our finishing program, where they get a carefully mixed ration made up of feedstuffs that all come from the farm or are locally sourced.
Once our Wagyu cross breeds are ready for finishing, they get fed a combination of corn, alfalfa, corn silage, mineral supplement that is OMRI certified, High functioning probiotic for gut health, and Redmond salt that is packed with trace minerals.
