This farm in Puslinch is the home of Wagyu cattle, some of which you can see off in the far right. These are the of the stock that are specially bred and fed to produce the finest Japanese (Kobe) beef. The animals are allowed to reach maturity naturally, so no hormones or implants are used. This Wagyu beef is based 70% on genetics and 30 on feeding technique. You can read more about it here.
