Stewards of the Land

At Gleason Bison we strive to work symbiotically with nature to create a thriving landscape through the grazing of our bison.  What does this mean?

Through holistic planned grazing, we manage our herd in a way that improves the water efficiency, land productivity, and health of the soil.  Our planet’s ecosystem evolved with grazing, ruminant animals roaming the land, and their role in creating healthy soil is vital.

“Ultimately, the only wealth that can sustain any community, economy, or nation is derived from the photosynthetic process – green plans growing of regenerating soils.”

– ALLAN SAVORY                                                    

The American Bison

The American bison is the iconic species of the American West and is the largest mammal in North America.  This amazing creature was pushed to the edge of extinction and is now gradually returning thanks to conservation and ranching efforts to preserve this keystone species.

At Gleason Bison, we believe that the animals deserve the utmost care and the ability to behave and live as they were meant to, as bison.  This means roaming, ruminating, rutting, wallowing, and all other behaviors that these amazing animals evolved doing that results in both thriving animals and a thriving ecosystem.

“Regenerative agriculture provides answers to the soil crisis, the food crisis, the health crisis, the climate crisis, and the crisis of democracy.”

– DR. VANDANA SHIVA
