Diamond T Ranch
100% Wagyu Beef
The Diamond T Ranch is your premier source for recessive genetic disease free Wagyu Cattle, boasting one of the largest full blood herds in Texas. Our cattle consist heavily of the Tajima blood line, the most sought after of the blood lines for their high marbling content, smooth texture, and buttery finish to the quality of the meat.
We take great pride in our carefully selected bloodlines to ensure that our herd has the most diverse selection of the most sought after traits that Wagyu cattle offers. Foremost, we meticulously select our breeding pairings to define our already genetically predisposed finest traits, and continually enhance our marbling, tenderness, and sultry delectable taste only offered through this specialty breed. Our cattle are full blood registered Wagyu, this is the true equivalent of the famed Japanese Kobé beef. Not American Kobé, as some undiscerning cattle producers would have you believe. We have within our herd, the prized Exxon 5 gene, which differentiates Wagyu from any other cattle species on Earth, in that our cattle retain more intramuscular fat, and are fed out a third longer to produce the precious flavor and texture known to fine dining connoisseur’s the world over. We have a large full-blood herd in Texas with the majority of our herd being free from all recessive genetic disorders
Our meat is unparalleled in its rich flavor, succulent texture and nuanced in flavor with buttery overtones, discerning to the most sophisticated of palates. Using a custom feed program developed in conjunction with Dr.Jimmy Horner, we have produced products that contains upwards of 50-52% of intramuscular fat with a suggested beef marbling score of 10-11 out of a possible 12, in the Japanese meat grading system. We spare no expense when it comes to the health and welfare of our cattle. This exquisite quality can only be achieved through selective genetic traits and a strict grain feed regimen from adolescence to harvest, before making it’s way to your table.
We offer some of the finest available genetic matches on the market. Our embryos are developed from some of the original bloodlines which were imported to the United States beginning in 1975, and bred to RGD free dams, bringing together the best traits of Tajima, Kedaka, and Shimane . Recessive gene free by pedigree, and high Tajima by blood, our cattle’s offspring have given genetically tested staeroyl ca desaturase (SCD) values of AA with a tenderness value of 10 – the highest meat grading values attainable according to the Japanese Cattle Panel test provided by the American Wagyu Association.
