Vendors Bid At A Kobe Beef Auction

A beef carcass, stamped with the Kobe beef 'Japanese chrysanthemum' trademark as proof of certification by the Kobe Beef Marketing and Distribution Promotion Association, is hung up prior to the Kobe beef auction, operated by Kobe Chuo Chikusan Niuke Ltd., at the Western Kobe Wholesale Market in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, on Monday, Sept. 2, 2013. Japan's Kobe beef only comes from purebred Tajima steers or virgin cows, raised and processed in Hyogo prefecture, and must strictly pass certain scores based on a beef marbling standard (BMS) in the Japanese carcass grading system set by the Japanese Meat Grading Association as well as other criteria. Only about 3,000 out of some 5,500 head of Tajima cattle taken to the market each year are certified as Kobe beef, according to the Kobe Beef Marketing and Distribution Promotion Association.
