3 Bar Ranch has been family-owned and operated since 2008. On almost 700 acres of land, we have populations of American Bison, Elk, Red Stag, Fallow Deer, Blackbuck, Antelope, Whitetail Deer, Llamas, and one miniature Sicilian Donkey all kept on our high fenced ranch.
When our ranch was purchased, 12 bison came with the land. By 2015 the herd had grown to 40+ animals. Eager to properly manage this beautiful, prehistoric mammal, we hired a bison consultant who educated our family and ranch employees on how to raise and market bison. Following his suggestions, two Woods Bison sire bulls were purchased from Colorado and are still breeding a healthy herd today! In 2017, construction began on our bison sized handling facilities and by 2018, the corral was humanely and effectively moving bison through for our first ever working event. Our bison are wormed, tagged, documented with gender, weight, production, and full detailed records of any offspring. All animals are raised from birth, are free roaming, and rotated every 30 days from pasture to pasture.
In efforts to keep our bison population low, we began selling a portion of our calves in 2018 and 2019. In 2020, COVID impacted our operations of selling live animals. Due to the remarkable growth of our bison population by late 2021, we decided to expand our operation to include the sale of processed meat, as well as other bison products, creating 3 Bar Bison, LLC. All bison used for meat sales are grass-fed, hormone and antibiotic free, and are grain finished. We utilize a qualified, local, state-inspected plant to process our animals.
3 Bar Bison implements regenerative agricultural practices to ensure healthier land and herd management. We provide low-stress, humane handling of the bison to achieve safety for the animals, as well as our ranch employees. We love what we do and are building a legacy for generations to come!
