You can be a part of North American
History, by raising Bison. Quill Creek
Bison produces top quality breeding
stock, that we ship anywhere in Canada
and the United States.
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.
Nature of the Bison Herd
Bison are a
naturally hearty 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
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.
