Mixed Ration Fed Bison
Our mixed ration finished bison are fed on a mix of good grass/legume hay and screening pellets, both available free choice. They have been fed a mixed forage ration through the winter following a summer on pasture last year, exactly the same as our forage finished animals.
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.
