Farm in Raymondville, MO We have sold our Elk herd

Andy and Kelly wanted to raise something different. They decided since they had all the high fencing already, why not elk. Working with elk is a lot different than any other animal Andy and Kelly have ever worked with, especially the bulls. During the fall "rut". The bulls can be quite aggressive. The cows also are very protective of their calves during the calving season, which is in June. They raise the elk for meat. Elk meat is very lean and has a very sweet taste to it, very different from venison. They sell some of their bull elks to local hunting ranches, and sell elk meat to local clients.
