A&K Ranch Beefalo
A&K Ranch began raising Beefalo cattle in 2009. They have at the present time 70 head of Beefalo. Andy first started raising Beefalo 25 years ago in New Jersey. He enjoyed working with them so much, he and his wife Kelly decided to start up a herd here in the Missouri Ozarks. A&K Ranch is a proud member of the American Beefalo Association.
We have had a great calving season this past Spring 2012. We have fullblood stock; and our purebred Beefalo stock range between 35.8% to 37.4% bison.
We are looking forward to the next few years. We are planning to expand our breeding program with AI (artificial insemination) and also with some hybrid Bison, which should be very exciting.
If you are interested, we can custom raise steers for you. Our steers should be ready by Fall 2013. If you have a preference on how they are fed, such as grain fed or grass fed, please contact us. We have the facilities to do both.
"Gabriel," our 4 year old fullblood bull, is 37.5% Bison, (3/8 Bison).
He has bloodlines that go back to "Geronimo".
