Full membership

Full Membership is designed to be the highest membership category, offering all benefits provided by the Association. These members are focused on highest quality seedstock cattle breeding and commercial beef production. They register their Wagyu Fullblood and Purebred cattle in the Wagyu Herdbook. Also they may register Wagyu related cattle in the Wagyu Crossbred Register for grading up purposes or live export; and the Wagyu Commercial Register for slaughter cattle. Registration of Wagyu cattle is not mandatory but adds very considerable value to those cattle.
