In 2015, we branched out from cattle into raising domesticated yaks. We bought our starter herd from Spring Brook Ranch in Kalispell, Montana. We also bought our first yak from Pack River Yaks in Sandpoint, Idaho. We are grateful to both ranches for getting us started, and for their assistance in breaking into the wonderful world of yaks!

In summer 2018, we were fortunate enough to have 15 new faces on the ranch.  Nine bulls and six heifers. They are growing up fast and love romping in the pasture with each other.
