Wagyu around the World - Kenya
The Boran beef breed is popular in Kenya and evolved in Ethiopa with mainly Zebu blood. There are taurine infusions but is considered to have been stable since 700AD.
Boran exhibit heterosis and several producers have been using Wagyu semen over Boran heifers with success in Kenya. These are some photos of F1.

A maternal Wagyu sire, such as Hirashiget WG045, is recommended to open the Boran heifer in the first cross. An excellent terminal sire to use over F1 heifers is Trent Bridge F115 to produce F2. More information here.
