People ask us why did we obtain into Yaks? After losing our Ag

exemption on the property in Wyoming, I understood we’d to begin raising something.

sense for the Mountain Ranch. Listed here are several reasons we chose

    during the cold months (Real essential for our Wyoming winters)

Yaks really are a unique breed by having an exotic appearance. They

have dramatic horns along with a hump much like Zoysia. Yaks are intelligent, quiet

creatures living about twenty five years. They learn fast and therefore are playful. Bulls weigh

from 1,200 to at least one,500 pounds, and cows weigh from 600 to 800 pounds. Yaks eat in regards to a

1/3 of the items a cow consumes and therefore are easy around the land. Yaks are available in several

colors: Black, Trim (Black with White-colored trim), Royal (Black and White-colored) Golden and

Woolly. Yaks need no special fencing or special feed, plus they can mange rich

winter. Yaks are simple to change from pasture to pasture (just a little grain goes a

lengthy way) utilizing a stay with guide them.
