|Outline of Final Research Achievements
We developed a metabolic imprinting and an information and communications technology (ICT, or Internet of Things) management system for Wagyu beef production as future systems.We partly found out the mechanism of metabolic imprinting by analysis of molecular biology in Wagyu cattle. finally, we produced safe, high-quality Wagyu beef using domestic pasture resources while solving the problems of how to utilize increasing areas of abandoned agricultural land and to make use of the plant-based feed resources in Japan’s mountainous areas.We also confirm the potential of grassfed beef market by Web questionnaire.
