The Akaushi Beef Breed


Welcome to Sunset C Ranch, L.T.D. We are family-owned and operated, and located 60 miles East of Kansas City, MO in the heart of God’s country.

We were first introduced to Akaushi beef (Red Wagyu), a Japanese breed of cattle, while still ranching in Texas. We liked what we saw and, upon doing more research, were highly impressed with the versatility of this amazing breed. Add that to the QUALITY and FLAVOR of the beef plus the proven health benefits...what a package!

Akaushi cattle are genetically predisposed to distribute more fat into the muscle. This gives the meat a higher than normal amount of marbling, producing a tender and more flavorful beef product with a rich, buttery flavor.

But, even more noteworthy are the health benefits. Akaushi cattle are known for their ability to accumulate tissue with a higher rate of monounsaturated to saturated fatty acids, which have been shown to lower “bad” cholesterol levels while maintaining “good” levels. This can lead to a reduction of cardiovascular disease, heart disease and high blood pressure, among other health benefits. Beef experts around the world have consistently considered Akaushi beef to be the most palatable and healthy beef.

The fall of 2012 found us one of the worst droughts in the history of the Texas panhandle. Finding it difficult to feed our then Charolais/Angus cow herd, the decision was made to disperse down to 40 cows and make the move to Missouri. Since that time, we have painstakingly increased our numbers as well as upgraded our breeding program. We are proud of how far we have come. We take great pride in raising and producing our beef products.

We are blessed to live the lifestyle that we love and to have the opportunity to share the unique and amazing qualities of the Akaushi breed. Our animals, here at Sunset C Ranch, are antibiotic and hormone-free. They consistently grade prime and are DNA verified.

We sell beef by the package in 1/4, 1/2 or whole beef. Thank you for visiting our website. Contact us today for pricing and availability to experience the dining pleasure of our premium beef.

Have a blessed day!
