The WISENT or European Bison
Silvertine's Wisent Herd
Silvertine has the ONLY herd of Wisent in Canada, and I hope to change that in the coming decade. There is one herd in the USA, and ours here at Silvertine. That's right, only two herds that we know of presently in all of North America. Our herd numbers just over 40 head as of January 1, 2018. We have 13 bulls and 27 females of varying ages.
It's the intent of the Ranch to encourage growth of this amazing animal within Canada. I am not into collecting these animals, I think everyone should have a few. I am in the business of promoting the growth of this species threw sales of Breeding stock to commercial and hobby farms, speciality meat market, and hunting stock. We do not ship and sell to the USA as the demand for the Wisent is strong enough here in Canada, I do not want to deal with the Import/Export Regulations.
We do not offer tours to the general public. But I am a business, so for those of you interested in raising and possibly interested in getting into Wisent, and want to learn more please contact me, I don't mind taking the time for serious inquirers.
