Zagelow Beefalo Ranch is located in the lower Yakima Valley in Washington State, somewhere in between the town of Harrah and White Swan to be exact. Some consider it paradise with a view of Mt. Adams to the west, warm beautiful summers, and snow covered winters.
& Juanita Zagelow own and have lived on the ranch for thirty years and have been
raising Beefalo for around 10 years. Jim began raising Polled Hereford cattle in 1971 and
made the switch to Beefalo in 1990.
Why the change? If Jim
was going to raise cattle for beef, he wanted it to be healthy beef. Beefalo has 63% less
fat than average supermarket beef, 32% less cholesterol, and 31% less calories.
Jim's dedication to the Beefalo Market has lead him to roles such
as, President of the Northwest Beefalo Association, and West Coast National Director,
ABWR. He and Juanita travel to National Meetings for both organizations and enjoy meeting
with other Beefalo breeders.
