The WISENT or European Bison
Silvertine's Wisent Herd
My entire herd is registered with the EUROPEAN BISON PEDIGREE BOOK in Poland as pure, and the foundations breeding stock stem from original imports from the Bialowieza National Park in Poland. These original animals are still in alive and well in my herd today!
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 60 head as of July 1, 2020. Rough guess I have around 25 bulls and 38 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, specialty meat market, and older bulls for hunting stock.
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.
