Alberta’s Bison Industry
The profile provides an overview of what is happening in Alberta’s bison supply chain. Alberta has a ranched bison supply chain of producers, finishers, federal and provincial licensed abattoirs, as well as wholesale and retail marketers.

This profile is the second in the series. The first was the Alberta Lamb Industry profile. Both resources are also available on the Value Chain Directory Listing under the Livestock resource category. The lamb and bison supply chain maps will be released shortly to accompany these profiles.
