Wagyu is arguably some of the most highly regarded meat in the world. This Japanese specialty has gained not only a following of devoted disciples but also a long list of fables and myths explaining its origins and the secrets behind its success. As with any food that has gained a cult following the stories surrounding it are told to understand why they’re so special and unique. It goes without saying that the majority of these are untrue. One of the most popular myths bandied about is that in the final months before slaughter, Wagyu cows are fed a rich diet of dark beer and they’re massaged every day by maidens. This combination is supposed to flavor and tenderize their meat. In reality, the Wagyu cow’s diet is very specific and is a closely guarded secret. So while there’s potential for beer to be a part of it, it’s very unlikely. The idea of daily massages given by the supple young hands of maidens is also ludicrous and probably stems from the fact that the cows do get their coats brushed regularly. Keeping them clean, content, and beautiful, are all a part of a much larger idea that a happy, well-cared-for cow is going to produce more delicious meat. The minimization of stress is a hallmark of Japanese cattle tending. If you ask any Japanese cattle farmer, this is how it's always been done in Japan, and they're extremely proud of how comfortable and calm their cows are.
