Robbins Island Wagyu

Fourth generation cattle farmers John, Keith, Alex and Chauncey Hammond have been breeding wagyu on Robbins Island since the early 1990’s.

During the iconic seasonal musters , bands of horsemen swim the cattle through saltwater channels at low tide to move them peacefully between grazing areas.

Situated on the north western tip of Tasmania, the island has a temperate climate, clean air and a pristine coastal environment.

It is a rare, remarkable Australian agricultural snapshot: cattle mustered across the low tide waters off Tasmania's northwest coast to graze on sand dune vegetation over winter.

And it's all the more unusual because those cattle are the highly prized Japanese Wagyu breed.
