How to complete the Transfer template

The Transfer template is used to transfer an animal. A transfer occurs when an animal is moved from one entity to the next. By recording a transfer, a record is generated of the movements of an animal throughout its lifetime. A transfer should be recorded when an animal is sold to a new owner. As well as when an animal is moved from one farm to another farm, feedlot, or abattoir for slaughter. For each movement, a new transfer must be recorded.

Certified Wagyu Beef is at the Hong Kong Food Expo

Certified Wagyu Beef is exhibiting at the Hong Kong Food Expo on 17 – 19 August 2023. The decision to become an exhibitor at this international food fair was made to support our members with their endeavours to export Wagyu. Exporting remains one of the top priorities of CWB and the Society to create price parity in the market. The experience of the event will be shared on our social media platforms. Follow us on Facebook & Instagram @wagyusa.
