Wagyu Grading

Royal Wagyu Supply specializes exclusively in A5+ Wagyu primal, ribeye, and striploin cuts which have been assessed as the highest yield, quality, and BMS by Japanese Meat Grading Association (JMGA).

  • "A" is the yield grade referring to amount of meat obtained from the cattle.
  • "5" is the the highest quality grade (1-5 scale) measuring fat & meat color, ribeye shape & size, and marbling.
  • BMS (Beef Marbling Standard) is evaluated on a scale of 1-12. A5 Wagyu has been graded at least 8, while Royal Wagyu Supply A5+ is graded 10-12.

JMGA standards are quite high, but all of our steak selections must also still meet the Royal Standard Criteria.
