Through our ranching practices we work to improve the soil and overall health of the land our bison graze on. There are various techniques we use that are consistent with sustainable agriculture practices such as limiting tillage of the soil, increasing plant diversity, rotating cover crops and limiting the use of synthetic inputs like pesticides and fertilizers, which can negatively impact soil health.
Managing livestock in conscientious ways regenerates the land and can have a positive impact on climate change. Through rotational grazing, we strategically move the bison around so that rangeland is trimmed and fertilized by the bison. This strategy leads to increased forage production and soil fertility, resistance to drought, better water retention, and the sequestration of carbon from the atmosphere into the soil.
