Eby Beefalo Co.

Powell Butte, Oregon

Welcome to Eby Beefalo Co. located in Powell Butte, Oregon!

When you are sitting in the middle of a community with black bulls and cows in almost every field why would one even consider raising the Beefalo breed?  When the breed is mentioned the neighbors look at you with question in their eyes.  They vision the animal breaking through the fences running wild down the road causing havoc along the way.

So why Beefalo?  Why not raise livestock that calve easily, are docile and friendly, less expensive to feed, and produce quality lean, low cholesteral meat?  And at the same time being a well portioned beautiful animal.  When the calves are born you never know calf curlywhat the color they will be and they usually are covered with  wavy curls.  But most of all  it is just a joy to watch the cows each day, wait for them to birth and watch the little ones mature.
