Hello my name is John Hooper some people know me as the yack man I’d like to take some time to show you my ackard how I raise and handle them I take pride in having calm and quiet animals ones that are raised in a humane and healthy environment now let’s take a trip out to the pasture and see some yak this is the black herd it also includes some trims trims are black with white on the head feet or tail this is the bowl for this herd his name is jet black he is an imperial and this means that he has a black nose instead of grey nose his father is Billy the Kid the largest yak in North America this is our royal herd we are rotating them to a new pasture Royals are black and white like a Holstein call there are also some trims in this group this is Idaho Phil the bull he is a nice-looking bull with a full skirt the reason I keep two separate herds is so I will have unrelated pairs available for sale we are bringing the Bulls in from the summer pasture and into their winter paddock which is about two acres in area they will be fed hay and a small amount of barley until the pasture is green up in the spring if someone bought a few female yak from me they would pick out an unrelated bull from this group these are my beef and yak crosses the XR butchered at four years of age in the crosses at two health-conscious families that are looking for a leaner red meat enjoy the flavor this little red calf is my first 3/4 blood yak his mother is a half yak and half Pinzgauer cow I run to yak bulls with the the beef herd this is Jericho one of the bulls these are my yearlings some are crosses and some are full-blooded yak these are the full-blood weanlings and soon the weanling crosses will join them this is the only group of animals I have that are restricted to only a Corral this is so they socialize with me and get used to being around and touched by me two weeks ago they were running wild with their mothers out in the pasture and by springtime they will be calm down and used to being around people if you want more than just a calm yak you might be interested in bottle feeding 1 we start at under a week of age the two Royals are three months old and the black is about one and a half months when raised this way they are playful loving and lots of entertainment they like their exercise it will be friendly for life EXR beautiful and fascinating creatures easy to handle an easy to fence they are the perfect stock for someone with a small farm 3 or 4 yak eat the same amount as one beef cow so with limited acres you can still have a nice sized herd yak maybe just the livestock you’ve been looking for if you have any more questions just ask the yak man John Hooper you.
