Bison Farming and Bison Ranching is one
of the fastest growing industries in
agriculture today. More and more people
are raising bison and selling bison meat
and bison products. The industry demand
for healthy, lean, nutritious bison meat continues to grow. The best breeding
females are currently being added to build the bison herds quickly and, on
average, are worth more than bulls. Prime meat animals are worth at least twice what prime beef demands. Bison
by-product values have increased more
rapidly than some meat products.
The Nature of the Bison Herd
Bison are a naturally hardy breed.
They have not only survived, but thrived, on
the North American continent for thousands
of years, they easily adapt to a wide
variety of climates. Winter cold and summer
heat are no problems for this breed. Bison
are not a domestic animal and should not be
handled as one. Low-pressure, low-stress
methods are required. Today's bison
producers have developed handling systems,
such as the variety we offer, to safely
herds and individuals.
Bison can live to a
ripe old age of 40. Bison cows generally
have their first off spring at age three and
a calf every year thereafter. Bison ranchers
plan on a 20 year reproductive life, and
that can reach 30 in some cases. Bison
calving usually occurs between April and
May. Bison have a gestation period of about
280 days and calves are normally born
weighting between forty and fifty pounds.
Herds generally require one bull for every
10 to 15 cows.

flavor. 2-It is healthier than cow beef. It
is lower in saturated fat than cow beef.

has the basics: zinc, niacin, iron, vitamin
B6 and selenium. 4-Bison are not handled
like cows. Our Bison are free range, grass
eating herds. 5-Bison is one of the leanest
meats and still has a lot of protein. But it
is the amount of protein you get in bison
meat, without the saturated fat that makes
bison a great alternative to regular beef.
