Sunset Bison Ranch, Saskatchewan Bison Association
Avery has been raising bison since 1999, and in the last eight years she has concentrated on improving her farm's ecosystem services. The results have been a more resilient farm, with happy, healthier animals, more wildlife and generally less stress on her and the animals.
I mainly run a cow, calf operation, with the recent addition of backgrounding and finishing my heifers, to give the ranch more flexibility with the land management.
The bison have been a true life’s passion for myself and my family, and we are learning that the more we care for the land, the better it is for the bison and ourselves.
