Akaushi (pronounced as Aka-ooshie) is a Japanese Red Wagyu breed of cattle. Originating within Kumamoto, Japan, the breed was created to offer the unique marbling qualities that Wagyu cattle are known to have in the ability of the animal to handle an environment that is warm and work for modern cattlemen.
This unique and highly prestigious breed is sought-after for more than the famous carcass characteristics. Akaushi cattle are distinguished by their marbling with sound structure, high fertility, and modern body types.
Star B's Akaushi cattle are easy fleshing, structurally sound, wean heavier calves and stay within the herds for long periods. As a result, our cattle are able to balance quality meat with appearance and performance.
Our Iowa Based Akaushi Beef uses Akaushi / Angus cross, corn-fed cattle. This gives it unique flavors and effortless marbling. Marbling refers to the white streaks that appear on a slim meat piece.
The amount of marbling can be an excellent indicator of the food's flavor. A lot of people adhere to the general rule that the greater marbling, the better quality of meat. The cattle are fed corn to give it a rich, distinct flavor that is unlike other brands. This enhances the level of marbling and the high quality and taste of meat!
