At Six Buck Ranch
our Wagyu cattle enjoy clean air, high quality mountain
meadow pastures, a serene setting and are holistically
managed to reduce stress and improve their quality of
life while on the ranch.
Cows are calved on pasture in the fall, while the
temperatures are still mild and dry, to get the calves
off to a healthier start.
Calves are weaned in June, before it get's hot, in close
proximity to their mothers to reduce stress.
We utilize "planned grazing" to reduce selective grazing
which improves the over-all health and diversity
in the plant communities. The added bonus is better
nutrition for the cattle. We do not use chemical
fertilizers on our hay or pasture ground resulting in the
return of dung beetles that assist in incorporating manure
back into the ground.
Finishing steers are fed a small amount of grains along
with grass hay for approximately 150 days. We do not
"push" them, but let them grow on their own more
We are now offering grass finished Wagyu beef as well!
