What Bison Eat

Bison health is a prority at Harlow Ranch Bison Co!

Bison are a key element in regenerating the ranch from the soil up. As we use different crops to increase soil health and nutrients, the bison are intaking those nutrients to grow strong and healthy.

Currently, they are fed grass, hay, and “range cake,” which is a grain based pellet. To give you an idea of their dayly intake, each bison typically eats 25 lbs of grass or hay and 1 lb of range cakes.

The bison are so cool and have such personality, it’s hard not to spoil them rotten.
