our story

2018 AWA

Graham Truscott assisted the directors of Stella Wagyu to meet the best breeders in Australia and acquire superior genetics.


Several batches of Embryos and Semen was acquired from Dom and Jo Bayard at GRS.

Macquary Wagyu is the only Japanese owned wagyu herd outside of Japan. Stella Wagyu acquired the best available semen and embryos from this award winning breeder. In 2018 Anthony, Chantal and Jacob Winter visited Stella Wagyu.



The success of Stella Wagyu is attributed to our dedicated team.

My consulting work with Stella Wagyu began in 2017 after they had acquired quality Australian genetics from Sumo Wagyu. Stella principals, Johan de Vos and Dr Sandy Bruns had the vision of Wagyu bringing extremely high value to the South African beef industry through its internationally renowned eating quality. With a strong focus on developing a top quality female herd, I assisted with introductions to some of Australia’s leading Wagyu operations. Excellent business relationships have been developed between Stella and Australia’s Macquarie Wagyu and Goorambat Wagyu.


Access to and selection of some of their best sire and dam combinations has positioned Stella to breed a Wagyu herd of superior quality. Semen from them and from others have also added high value to both Stella and its customers. Stella Wagyu represents some of the best possible proven Wagyu genetics and is ready to deliver on its vision for South Africa.
