A Natural Choice
Bison... A Healthy Natural Choice
Consumers are becoming more knowledgeable about food safety issues and demand a safe, healthy, natural source of food. Bison are raised naturally without the use of growth hormones, stimulants, antibiotics or animal by-products. Bison are naturally fed pasture grasses. Some bison receive supplemental forage (hay and silage) and grain (primarily oats) during extreme weather or during droughts when pastures are dry. Combination feed grain and forage rations are sometimes used to mimic optimal pasture conditions and “finish” animals for a brief period just prior to their entry into the food system.
The bison industry has been working on programs that guide our producer’s management practices and build consumer confidence in our product.
