About J bar S Bison Ranch & Store
J-Bar-S Ranch began as a 57-acre purchase by owner Jim Lawson in 1966.
Over time the 57 acres became 1,000 acres (some of the land has since been sold so it's now a little under 1,000 acres) and is a working Bison/Buffalo ranch.
Jim Lawson started his bison business in 1986. "We started with a cow, calf and a bull. Then we got up to 10 head, then we got to 20 then we eventually got to 100 and that was a little too much for the ranch."
He only herds buffalo and has between 75 to 80 head on his ranch which keep him and his five other ranch hands busy.
