Pirates target prized wagyu beef genes

Alexander Roberts

Genetic material for wagyu beef, a Japanese delicacy and key export, was almost smuggled overseas in a recent incident, a close call that has spurred Japan to guard its cattle and their reproductive cells more tightly to keep copycats from breeding them.

Last July, a man from Osaka Prefecture carrying more than 100 samples of wagyu zygotes and sperm in specialized containers apparently evaded quarantine inspections and boarded a ferry to Shanghai, according to Japan's Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

Upon arrival in China, he was stopped by customs and returned to Japan, where he voluntarily turned himself in at a quarantine station, telling officials he was "asked by an acquaintance" to deliver the materials and "didn't know it was illegal" to do so.

Japanese law on controlling infectious diseases among domestic animals requires that animals, as well as their products such as meat and eggs, undergo quarantine inspections before being taken abroad, with violations punishable by up to three years in prison or a maximum of 1 million yen ($9,000) in fines. Exporting wagyu zygotes and sperm is forbidden regardless of whether they have been inspected.

Are we /cyberpunk/ yet?

The future has imploded into the present
With no nuclear war, a new battlefield is cow
Mega-ranches are the new governments;
Computer-generated bovine genes are the new frontiers
And though there is better living through cow
We are all becoming cow
cow is the new cool tool
And though they say all cow should be free
It is not
cow is power and currency in the virtual world we inhabit
So mistrust horse
Cybercows are the true rebels;
Cyber-rodeo is coming in under the radar of ordinary society...
An unholy alliance of the beer world and the world of organized cow
Welcome to the Cyber K Ranch...
...Cybercows

Do actually no wagyu cows live outside of japan?

I thought its more like a name tied to a location like parmesan, champagner etc.

The "quarantine" is imposed by the state.
But keep blaming capitalists, yeah.

Good lord you are fucking idiots.

Capitalists are the state you nigger. That's what happens. It's illegal to RAISE CATTLE because of laws enacted to protect private interests. You didn't get to choose. Until you start you're just a cuck.

Leo Stewart

You drank the collectivist kool-aid, so I won't bother discussing that. The moment you reject your own right to privately own things, you become a slave for others. Thanks to people like you those corrupt capitalists keep getting more powerful, if anything.

In those countries, their governments also regulate what can be legally be called parmesan, or champagne, limiting it to it's region of origin, kinda how like in the US you can't legally call your product ice cream if it doesn't contain at least 4% milkfat by weight.

Kobe beef is overrated as fuck, fatty fucking beef, FAT IS FLAVOR??
you might as well eat lard and have a coronary.

Isn't sperm and egg transport the standard industrial way for getting domestic animals through quarantine? How could this be illegal?

Yes it's standard breeding practice. Why wagyu export is illegal? Because Japan wants to maintain its monopoly on it.

It's not illegal to raise cattle. It's illegal to export wagyuu zygotes and sperm.
Nice job not even reading the OP, lol.

Be hot shit over 2000 years ago
Grow so complacent that you get beaten the shit out of you by barbarians from the west, then a tiny-ass island nation, then a tiny-ass island nation from the other side of the world, then the first island nation again
Have an ideology rise to power that so completely and terminally destroys any spirit, moral or connection to your own history that you become a parasitic society that barely subsists on cannibalizing and brutalizing each other while lying to, stealing from and cheating the foreigners that are too greedy to just put a stop to you

10% milkfat is the minimum for normal ice cream ignoring light/low fat varieites. anything lower is called frozen dairy desserts or 'gelato'

Wouldn't it just be easier to get it from australia where they already have wagyu cattle? Im pretty sure they produce more wagyu beef than japan

Nuking China, India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan would solve most of the world's problems. Nuking Israel and Mexico would solve the rest of them.
