Grass/Forage Finished Bison 

Our forage finished bison are grazed on a mix of tame and native parkland pasture.  They have been fed a mixed forage ration through the winter following a summer on pasture last year.

Our guarantee is that any product labeled 'Grass Finished' has gone through a complete winter season, followed by a full summer season, on dry or green forages (no grain/pulses).

Bison finished on pasture forage tend to have a lipid (fatty acid) profile that supports good cardiovascular health.  Forage finished bison meat displays increased levels of Omega 3 fatty acids, CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) and beta-carotene.

A dietary Omega 6:3 ratio below 4:1 is generally considered to be 'heart friendly' by cardiovascular health specialists.  This promotes increased circulating n-3 LC-PUFA which studies indicate may reduce risk of cardiovascular disease and autoimmune inflammatory responses.

Bison finish leaner than beef but with similar fatty acid ratios.

For comparison:

Forage Bison               2.7:1

Mixed Ration Bison     3.1:1

Grain Fed Bison          >7:1
