ANGUS / WAGYU CROSS
Wagyu beef has many attributes. One is that it has health benefits. It has almost twice as much of the heart healthy fat (monounsaturated fatty acid) than other breeds. Another attribute and probably the one that most of the buyers care about is, it tastes good. The same traits that give it the health benefits, give it a soft buttery texture and distinct taste.
What is Wagyu?
Wagyu means Japanese cow. The Wagyu breed was introduced into the United States in 1975. Four Wagyu bulls were brought in, two were black bulls and two were red bulls. These bulls were used to crossbreed Angus (also known as the “F1 cross) and other breeds to help improve the quality and productivity of domestic herds. In the mid 90’s five more black bulls and 3 females were brought in and this became the foundation of the American herd of 100% Wagyu.
Grass Fed & Hormone Free*
*grain finish cattle available on request.
BCMC’s steers and heifers are 100% grass fed and hormone free. We wean our calves at six months and they are rotated for the next 12 +/- months on native and improved grass pastures. Our goal is to get the calves to 1000 pounds before we take them to be processed. The carcass is aged for 14 days and then processed and packaged into individual frozen vacuum sealed packages.

We Believe in Quality
Chance Finley had a dream. He Approached his dad, Kent Finley, about breeding his Angus cows to Wagyu bulls. They both decided to give it a try and see if they could make it work. They sold their existing bulls and calved out their cows. BCMC bought 25 Wagyu/Angus cross steers and heifers from Ben Taylor and Dr. DeWayne Cannon, DVM in December 2017. They weaned their Angus calves in the first quarter of 2018 and brought in Wagyu bulls in June. BCMC made arrangements with 1862 Ranch to lease two Wagyu bulls. BCMC has been very pleased with the bull performance and they also purchased 10 100% Wagyu cows from the 1862 ranch.
BCMC had its first calves born in late February 2019. BCMC also purchased another 20 Wagyu/Angus cross steers from Ben Taylor and Dr. Cannon for 2020 sales. BCMC will be totally self-sufficient in 2021. BCMC will be able to sell 50% Wagyu/Angus, 75% Wagyu/Angus and 100% Wagyu 2021.
