Armin and Rita Mueller have long been fascinated by bison. Convinced of the quality of the meat – and its tremendous health benefits - they started a bison herd in the late 1990s. Today, Mueller’s Pilatus Farms has about 2,000 bison on nearly 1,000 hectares of land in west central Alberta.
To connect the dots between growing and marketing the meat, Mueller bought Canadian Rangeland Bison Inc., a private marketing and distribution company that supplies high quality meat for the health conscious consumer.
Today, Mueller is the company’s major supplier of top quality bison and farmed Wapiti elk meat. All of the bison and elk cuts are certified hormone and antibiotic free. The company also offers halal blessed products.
The meat is EU and US certified and is exported all over North America, Europe and the Middle East. A new processing plant in Lacombe, Alberta is specifically designed for bison.
Mueller – who emigrated to Alberta from Switzerland 35 years ago – is well known and respected in the bison industry. He has always been committed to supporting local producers, and shipping finished products, and not live animals, over long distances.
