The objective of the Canadian Bison Bull Draft is to evaluate individual bison bull performance under a common set of external circumstances. Yearling bulls from different consignors assembled at a host ranch will receive a common health treatment, feed regimen, and handling protocol. The dRAFT bulls will be pastured with bulls from the host ranch. They will be weighed at predetermined intervals. At the end of the program the bulls will have a final weigh in and be semen tested and offered to the public by auction. Awards will be provided for the top bulls and will be based on a combination of their growth performance and the judge’s evaluation.
