We work to preserve the American Bison through sustainable ranching practices.

Thousands of American Bison used to roam the plains, but since that time, the bison has had a rocky history. While at one point the bison was hunted to near extinction, this wonderful species has made a comeback in recent years. We are proud to be part of an effort that has raised the population of bison in North America to around 500,000.

All of the bison at Miller Bison at Elkhead Ranch are raised and handled according to strict principles. We call this our Responsibly Ranch Raised promise. Among other things, this means that our bison are minimally handled, treated with respect and raised naturally, without the use of growth hormones, antibiotics or steroids.

We strive to educate others about the awesome animals we spend our lives working with.

We think the bison is a pretty awesome creature and we love to share our knowledge with the world. We offer bison ranch tours and field trips to groups, classes, individuals and families who want to learn more about bison, ranching or where their food comes from.

We are always happy to answer any questions about our process, our ranch or our animals as part of our effort to continue the growth of bison herds in America.
