Kay Ranch Texas


Bubba and Donna Kay welcome you to our Wagyu ranch located just 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!

Kay Wagyu

Bubba and I were having a glass of wine, not on the patio......it's way too hot.....and discussing some of our experiences with Wagyu cattle over the years. What strikes us both is the adaptability of these cattle. They are raised in the harshest of cold weather in Canada, Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, Idaho, etc.
Yet we raise them in days and days on end of triple digit heat and humidity in Texas. Same breed, same genetics, and still they thrive.
We just finished a flush with the temps in triple digits and the donors still gave us 20+ grade one embryos.
We don't pamper. Our cattle are raised in the harsh brush land of Texas. No barn. No misters. Just a tree for shade. No special feed. Mostly no feed, just cubes and minerals. They are raised like every other commercial cow in Texas, and across America. And still they produce top end numbers in the Grow Safe program for RFI and ultrasound. Our calves wean off as well as our Angus did, and grow.
How do you fault this breed?!
