RE:  Grassfed Claim Standards for Northstar Bison, LLC


Grass (Forage) Fed—Grass and forage shall be the feed source consumed for

the lifetime of the ruminant animal, with the exception of milk consumed

prior to weaning. The diet shall be derived solely from forage consisting of

grass (annual and perennial), forbs (e.g., legumes, Brassica), browse, or cereal

grain crops in the vegetative (pre-grain) state. Animals cannot be fed grain or

grain byproducts and must have continuous access to pasture during the

growing season. Hay, haylage, baleage, silage, crop residue without grain, and

other roughage sources may also be included as acceptable feed sources.

Routine mineral and vitamin supplementation may also be included

in the feeding regimen. If incidental supplementation occurs due to

inadvertent exposure to non-forage feedstuffs or to ensure the animal’s well

being at all times during adverse environmental or physical conditions,

the producer must fully document (e.g., receipts, ingredients, and tear tags) the 
supplementation that occurs including the amount, the frequency, and the supplements provided.

No added growth hormones or sub-therapeutic antibiotics are used during the lifetime of these animals.

Non-GMO.  No-grain ever.
