The Lazy A Ranch, certified by the American Grassfed Association and Animal Welfare Approved, is a member of the American British White Park Association, the British White Cattle Association of America, the American Wagyu Association, and the Texas Wagyu Association. Our ranch is certified, which means that our world class standards have been verified by an independent auditor. Our second ranch, the Brazos River Ranch, is located in Waller County. It is the location of two British White herds, two Akaushi herds, and the steers in the beef program.

Two of our herds are the historic British White breed, once reserved for the English royalty and aristocracy, and enclosed in parks. The herd sires are NT Aries, B&B Ulysses, J.West’s El Presidente, DW Golden Brick, and RLC Farms Houston. The Lazy A Ranch website, LazyATexas.com includes a history of this breed.

Another two herds are of the world renowned Akaushi (Japanese Red Wagyu) breed, headed by JC Red Star 50, and Heartbrand 3989B. They are bred to 50% and 75% British White cows to produce F1 calves. The next generation, F2 calves, will be born in 2017.

The ranch follows organic pasture care with compost teas and liquid organic fertilizer from Sustainable Growth Texas, and follows Holistic Management International principles, including rotational grazing. We do not use pesticides, herbicides, routine antibiotics or growth hormones.

Our animals are tame, moved gently, and live on grassy pasture their entire lives. Most were born on the ranch. In addition to pasture grass our cows eat baled hay from our ranch, alfalfa from Nebraska, and an IGR mineral molasses tub. They are also given a free-choice supplement with vitamins, minerals, kelp, Chaffhaye (fermented) Alfalfa, and diatomaceous earth. They also get a sea salt block with minerals.

The finishing process is begun after weaning, and alfalfa and hay bales are added in the pastures. They are weighed monthly. After 28 months they are weighed weekly. Typically, our beef will be 30-32 months old and 1300-1400 pounds for a heavier, more marbled and flavorful beef according to the protocol of Artisan French labeled beef. As long as they are gaining they are allowed to develop. They will be individually selected as they reach full growth and desired heaviness and processed by Smithville Food Lockers, which is also Animal Welfare Approved. Beef will be dry aged for 21 days and shrink wrapped for your freezer. We take custom orders.

The Lazy A Ranch is located about one hour from Houston between Bellville and Hempstead in Austin county. Beef may be picked up at the ranch, in the Texas Medical Center Houston, or may be shipped frozen overnight in Texas.
