Bison ranchers are committed to raising their animals naturally. U.S. Department of Agriculture regulations do not allow bison to be raised using growth hormones. The National Bison Association's code of ethics prohibits the feeding of sub-therapeutic antibiotics to bison, crossbreeding with cattle, cloning, in-vitro fertilization or other artificial reproduction practices. Additionally the code of ethics requires members to respect and help conserve our natural and cultural heritage while striving to improve the environment and the quality of life within. Members are bonded to provide adequate food, handling facilities and health care to ensure the well-being of animals in their care. See full code of ethics at www.bisoncentral.com.
Naturally raised bison interact with the environment today as Mother Nature intended. Their movement across the land promotes healthy ecosystems, and produces a delicious, nutrient-dense meat.
