Sweden Bison Bisonfarmen i Gate

……At Mobolets Farm in West Gotaland, (Sweden) We have American bison since 2004, imported from the U.S.. Today there are about 125 animals in the herd. They can be seen on guided tours with tractor and prairie wagon. The Farm is beautifully located with an amazing view over a great part of the lake Vättern and The Forest of Hökensås. Bison Farm at Gate has 138 acres of pasture divided into seven enclosures. The animals are moved from enclosure to enclosure to meet the needs of new grass. In the wintertime the animals are fed with hay. At the farm breeding and meat production are the main activities. Breeding stock for sale is available. Please contact us for Further Information. All the pictures are from our farm.
