Northstar Bison Sworn Producer Affidavit
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
No added growth hormones or antibiotics are used during the lifetime of these animals.
Non-GMO. No-grain ever. In the event that an animal requires therapeutic antibiotic treatment, the animal will be sold prior to harvest by Northstar Bison.
I/We Marielle Hewitt at Northstar Ranches, LLC guarantee the Bison product supplied to Northstar Bison comply with the dietary regimen described above.
