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 there after. 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 weighing between forty and fifty pounds.
Herds generally require one bull for every 10 to 15 cows.
Original Early North American Red Meat -
Why eat Bison? 1-It is taster than
beef and richer in flavor. 2-It is healthier than cow beef. It
is lower in saturated fat than cow beef. 3-Bison is a great
source of nutrients, it has the basics: zinc, niacin, iron,
vitamin B6 and selenium. Bison are not handled like cows. 4-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.
