KC Cattle Company
Great food for a great cause. That’s the driving premise behind KC Cattle Company, a veteran-owned and staffed ranch dedicated to producing the finest, USDA certified hormone-free American Wagyu beef, available for shipping to the lower 48 states.
Montgomery founded the company in honor of his brother-in-law, also a First Ranger Battalion member, who was killed in combat. He decided not to let the tragic loss become a crutch for inaction and destructive behavior, but rather serve as motivation to build a dream worthy of his memory.
Montgomery sources his cattle only from the best and most established Wagyu breeders in the U.S. Wagyu is a breed that originated in Japan (where the name means “black cow”). Wagyu cattle are known for having an extraordinary intramuscular fat. In premium steaks, this means optimum marbling and in turn, optimum flavor. This fat also has a lower melting point, and these attributes combine to deliver superior taste.
KC Cattle Company has an online butcher shop that offers a wide range of Wagyu cuts, from its best-selling strips, ribeyes, and filets to ground beef that takes burgers from simply satisfying to sublime. In addition to flank, hangar, flat iron, strip, ribeye and tenderloin steaks, beef lovers can choose from soup bones, kabob and stewmeat, roasts, ribs and brisket. Special packages such as the BBQ Sampler and the Family Beef Package make great holiday, Father’s Day or anytime gifts.
