A first plan was drafted to breed the exclusive wagyu cow on the meadows surrounding the Altembrouck estate

Readen Holding Corp acquired the estate in 2012, and improved the Hotel and restaurant, and implemented a new strategy to extend the wagyu herd.

This wagyu herd is one of the most exclusive herd in Europe, with DNA testing we have determined that all our cows are at least 99,99% pure wagyu bred for at least 5 generations back. This exclusive herd will be used for a small part for meat, and mostly for the unique DNA. This DNA is being distributed worldwide to enhance the quality of meat of other herds. Or to establish new pure bred wagyu herds.  

 

The Hotel was extended with additional rooms, a new hunting bar, a golf café and first steps are taken to rebuild the gate keepers house to be used as retreat for families.
