About Us
Our small farm is located in the far southwest corner of Rawlins Co. Kansas, of northwest Kansas, where our yak roam a small pasture in the summer and stick close to the corrals in winter, sometimes grazing on crop stubbles of cane, wheat, milo, or sunflowers. Some shelter with tree breaks, but very much at 'home on the range'!

NOTICE: 1/25/19 John brought home our last butcher but I haven't had a chance to inventory it yet so look for an update of availability soon!!
Practices
Our peaceful Yak herd is raised in a natural environment, where they never receive inoculations or hormones, are fed natural pasture grasses and feed raised locally (All natural feed). Sooooo ---- In the feed: Ahoy, No Soy - & No to GMO!!!
This winter they were feeding on cane and wheat hay bales. This late spring and early summer they were on wheat after insurance adjustment, then turned out into pasture so milo could be planted! Mineral and salt blocks and mineral tubs are set out to supplement their more specific needs. Yak require more copper than other bovine.
Although they grow slower than beef cattle, they are longer-lived, with the ability to produce young well into their 20s. Consequently, it takes a couple of years longer than beef cattle to be ready for the freezer/dinner plate.
