The Osaka Prefectural Police have been investigating a farmer in Tokushima Prefecture for selling the sperm and fertilized eggs of wagyu beef cattle to a Japanese man who attempted to smuggle them to China, sources have said.

The livestock farmer told police in February he sold the sperm and eggs for several million yen to a man he had never met, the sources said Sunday.
