At Grunniens Yak Ranch (rhymes with onions), our herd is built on diverse genetics, proven winners, and careful selection. Health, fertility, conformation, and temperament is where our time is spent. The highest priority of our breeding program is the retention of characteristics that make yaks the great alternative livestock they are: feed efficiency, altitude adaptation, cold hardiness, disease resistance, predator defensiveness, and calving ease. Yaks are an incredibly productive animal, providing the livelihoods of Tibetans for centuries. The worst we could do is introduce the problems associated with modern bovine production - increased input costs, required human intervention, increasing vet bills, decreasing fertility rates. We are working with nature to create highly productive yaks that outperform the herd.
