Red Wagyu pronounced Ah-ka-OO-shi
Akaushi Cattle are a red breed of cattle developed in Kumamoto, Japan. They were first brought to the United States in 1994 and the American herd has grown since then. Akaushi cows are known for fertility, calving ease, and udder quality among other characteristics. The breed is also known to develop marbling early on either grain or grass feeding, making them a good fit for our beef program here at the farm. The fat composition of the Akaushi might be one of the most interesting and exciting things about the cattle. They have a ratio of higher monounsaturated fat relative to saturated fat making them a heart healthier choice that can help control cholesterol. The Akaushi will be incorporated into our own feed out program to help us develop high quality beef to be sold from the farm. Our first Akaushi calves were born in May 2021 and we are currently offering percentage and fullblood heifers and bulls. We also offer percentage feeder steers for you to feed out to your liking.
