Eat Better. Eat Bison.
You Asked Us
Why is bison more expensive than beef?
- Bison are not farmed on the same massive scale as cattle and are considered more of a specialty item than a commodity.
- There are approximately 500,000 head of bison in North America vs over 100,000,000 head of cattle, therefore, the bison industry does not have the same efficiencies that the cattle industry does.
- Our animals are raised primarily on pasture utilizing restorative ranching practices
- Bison take longer to produce; 24-30 months when harvested vs 15-18 months for beef.
- Bison meat is considered more of a specialty item, with pricing comparable to other premium protein products.

What do you mean by sustainable or regenerative ranching?
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.
