The hallmark Wagyu genetics event for the global Wagyu Sector
The Australian Wagyu Association (AWA) will facilitate the 2023 Elite Wagyu Sale (EWS) to support the thriving Wagyu Sector by offering AWA breeders the opportunity to sell their high-performing and unique Wagyu genetics in one place at the one time. The Sale has become the hallmark Wagyu genetics event for the international Wagyu Sector.
Every lot accepted into the 2023 Sale will be extremely high quality, with animals required to be at the top of the AWA published Estimated Breeding Values for Wagyu traits to qualify.
Buyers now recognise the genetic tools’ contribution to increasing the accuracy of animal performance figures. All entries are proven animals, at least one generation back in their pedigrees.
The global live and online AWA Elite Wagyu Sale will take place on 20 April 2023 in Sydney Australia. If you can’t attend the sale room in person, pre-registered buyers will be able to place their bids online in realtime. Lots accepted into the catalogue will be limited to a maximum of 60.
