Over 50 acres to graze
The buffalo graze on over 50 acres while the rest of the farm is used for growing grass that is stored as hay for them to eat during the winter months. At various times of the year the buffalo must be brought in for veterinary purposes. To do so, the buffalo are handled through an elaborate corral system consisting of steel piping holding pens, to smaller steel cages, and then a clamping system that literally holds the animal in steel casing until they are released to another series of pens and back to the fields with much relief on their part and ours!
To assist commercial growers, the National Bison Association was formed in 1995. Today the NBA has 2400 members in all 50 states. Red Run Farm is a member of the National and Eastern Bison Association.
