Bison is the largest land mammal in North America. Being native to this continent it is perfectly adapted to the climate, vegetation and environment. After barely escaping extinction by the end of the 19th century, today’s bison population is back at almost half a million animals, though only a small percentage of herds are roaming freely in national parks in the US and Canada, the majority is on privately owned large farms and ranches in Western Canada and the Midwest of the USA.
A major part of the Canadian Rangeland Bison are born and raised on the Pilatus Bison Farm near Bentley AB. The vast grasslands in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains are ideal pasture grounds for the bison cow herds.
