how to raise yaks FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

Question - Is raising yaks dangerous?

Answer - Like any livestock animal, raising yaks can be dangerous if not domesticated the right way. The females range in size from 600-800 pounds, and males around 1,200-1,600 pounds, and both have large horns. When they feel threatened, they'll swing their massive horns, so you have to be carefull.

Question - How many acres do you require to raise yaks?

Answer - If the amount of land is rated for 1 animal unit per acre, you can stock four yaks on that one acre. Your production capabilities for pounds of meat per acre can be dramatically raised by raising yaks rather than beef cows.

Question - What feed is good for yaks?

Answer - Yak nutritional feed is the same to that of most other ruminants, which is good-quality hay, a clean source of water, and a cattle vitamin and mineral mix, while yak growing or finishing rations will increase meat and milk production.
