American Akaushi Association

In 1994 the nucleus of the American Akaushi herd was brought to the United States. The same closed herd and multi-trait selection process used in Japan, is now used in the United States by the American Akaushi Association members.

American Akaushi cattle are 100 percent pure and are direct descendants of the Mount Aso Region’s revered Akaushi herds. The Akaushi breed was approved by the National Pedigree Livestock Council as an official purebred breed and received a breed code (AA) from the National Association of Animal Breeders. Our branded beef programs have been approved by the USDA which should help our members increase their bottom line.

We are committed to increasing the number of Akaushi influenced cattle by working with producers who have a desire to significantly improve the quality and value of their calves using their current cow herd. Additionally, we will manage the American Akaushi Association as a business, investing profits back into membership programs, market research and services in order to best serve the membership’s goals, while maintaining the highest level of integrity.
