The positive outlook for Bison is also a reflection of a strong consumer demand for a heart healthier red meat that is lower in fat and cholesterol and provides more protein with essential vitamins and minerals, when compared to most other meat choices.

Fresh Bison meat is non-allergenic, has no low-level antibiotics, no hormones, no drug residues and no preservatives.

The Board of the Bison Producers of Alberta has been further strengthened with the addition of its latest Directors.

Marvin Moore, a rancher and businessman, is currently President of KLB Bison Ranch Inc., a Bison ranch operation located at DeBolt, Alberta, 60 kilometers east of Grande Prairie, in the Peace River Region.

Also new to the BPA Board are Ivan Smith, Bison Producer and Businessman from Innisfail, Ms. Tara Lunzman, Businesswoman and Meat Marketer from Bluffton and Troy Hanson, Bison Rancher from Valhalla Centre, Alberta.

Commenting on the election of the new Directors, Chair Tom Olson stated, “We welcome this blend of experience and youth to the Board and look forward to their fresh insights and contributions.”
