We currently raise a herd of around 20 yak. Our focus is on quality, foundation animals with excellent fiber, size, conformation and above all, temperament and personality. Almost all our animals are tame soon after birth. We focus on imprinting immediately and spend a lot of time with the calves.
We like big, solid framed animals that are elegant and powerful in appearance. Bulls should be masculine with an ample horn set, large frame and musculature, good fiber and calm personality. Our cows have been selected and raised for their personalities just as much as their appearance. We like them to be feminine, but with large, powerful bodies and sweet, personable dispositions. We breed for fiber, size, milk production and friendliness to promote the most multi-purpose and beautiful animal.
On the rare occasion that an animal does not meet our standards for being calm, tractable and friendly, they go into the meat program or find a home elsewhere.
