Bubba and Donna Kay welcome you to our Wagyu ranch located just five miles east of Austin, Texas!

DIFFERENT FROM THE HERD!  At Kay Ranch we believe that our potential buyers should have all the tools they need to make an educated Wagyu purchase.  We want you to be successful in your Wagyu investment. That’s why at Kay Ranch we enroll our Wagyu calves in a Grow Safe Performance test.  You will not only get weights at weaning and yearling,  but you will know how many lbs. of feed it took for that Wagyu calf to gain that weight.  We utilize ultrasound measurements at the yearling age in order for you to predict what that Wagyu calf should pass on to the next generation.   We know that you have many choices out there.  We are different from the rest, and hope that you will choose Kay Wagyu for your next Wagyu purchase.

Carcass Quality – Calving Ease – Fertility

We are innovative and progressive Fullblood Wagyu breeders dedicated to establishing Wagyu cattle and Wagyu genetics into the American beef industry.  Kay Ranch is a leader in cutting edge Japanese Wagyu genetics.  We test all calves for SCD (Stearoyl COA Desaturase) and tenderness.* When you make a Wagyu purchase from Kay Wagyu, you will have all the information needed to help you make an educated buying decision.

Give us a call at 512.801.1424 and come by to see our Wagyu cattle. You are always welcome!
