Ruhter Bison is a family operated ranch established in 2011 on 68 acres of a restored underground coal mine, located one mile north of the thriving metropolis of Murdock IL (population 400). Currently we have 36 animals. Most of our meat sales are through local farmer’s markets in Urbana and Frankfort Illinois. We work closely with the University of Illinois Veterinary School to maintain optimum health of our herd.
