Snake River Farms, American Wagyu Beef and American Kurobuta Pork Join the Winn Meat Company roster of fine proteins

Snake River FarmsDALLAS (December 10, 2008) – Snake River Farms American Wagyu Beef and American Kurobuta Pork join the growing list of fine proteins carried by Winn Meat Company, the southwest's premier purveyor of fine proteins, company officials announced today.

"Snake River Farms has created a Wagyu/Angus crossbreed that has superior flavor, tenderness, is sustainable and 100% natural." said Jamie Samford, Vice President of Product Development and Corporate Chef for Winn Meat Company. "I absolutely love good pork and their 100% purebred Berkshire breed has the flavor, tenderness and marbling that truly separate it from the imposters out there. Snake River Farms strict and documented animal well - being policies are important to us as well."

Snake River Farms is a family owned business, started by Robert Rebholtz, the founder of Agri Beef Co., a family owned cattle company located in Boise, Idaho. Snake River Farms began over a decade ago with a small herd of Wagyu cattle from the Kobe region of Japan. The name Wagyu refers to all Japanese beef cattle ("Wa" meaning Japanese-style and "gyu" meaning cattle.) The Wagyu bulls were crossed with premium American Black Angus to form a proprietary herd that has developed into one of the finest groups of Wagyu/Angus cross cattle in the U.S.

Often referred to as American Kobe Beef, this unique breed was bred specifically to deliver the finest eating quality. Special attention is given to care and feed management. Every step in the production process is strictly controlled to ensure that this level of distinction is achieved. Snake River Farms uses a feeding program that adheres to the heritage-steeped Japanese long-feeding program. They feed their cattle four times longer than average cattle in order to develop the superior flavor and tenderness of this succulent beef. Snake River Farms feeds only the finest ingredients, including Idaho potatoes, soft white wheat, corn and alfalfa hay. Animal by-products are not used in their feeding program and their beef is completely free from added hormones and antibiotic residue.

Snake River Farms also produces American Kurobuta Pork, 100% pure all-natural Berkshire pork, raised by a small network of family farmers dedicated to delivering only the best. It is the finest pork available. For more information, visit
