Here at High Country Critters in Black Forest we have been raising Full Foundation IYAK Registered Tibetan Yaks since 2001. IYAK registration (only $65.00) is crucial in the resale value of yaks and the sales of their offspring, not to mention proof of parentage or inbreeding. Unregistered animals have the value of 'meat animals'. We do not pair up our calves with unregistered stock for breeding pairs or starter herds, I need to research pedigrees to assure we are not contributing to inbreeding. We create herds that can be resold in the future and all of the offspring can be registered as well to bring the best price possible.

There are ZERO hybrids in our bloodlines, all yaks go back (on paper) to the first ever imported into the US. We have a small herd of 8 adults and can pet, scratch and brush all of them. Our calves are imprinted the day of birth and are used to the human touch, scratches and brushing often each day. We collect the yak fiber each spring and have sold out every year due to excellent quality.

HCC YADEN MADE IN CHAINA was born 3/30/23 and is for sale at $2200.00 he is a gorgeous Native Trim and going to be a massive bull, His pedigree goes back 6 generations to Sargent Pepper (C101) who was imported and was the first yak ever registered with IYAK! He has great lineage on both sides...a true asset to any breeding program! His mama Melissa (Z053) is very sweet, a Native Black and papa Thor (Y052) a Royal is a gentle giant (see picture), Yaden truly likes people, he will seek us out for attention and... he lays down if you scratch his ears!

Yaden will be IYAK registered, wormed and vaccinated and ready for pick up or delivery this fall. We will deliver for free within a 150mi. radius or meet and do a trailer-to-trailer swap. We can create a breeding pair or a starter herd with the help of other nearby ranchers. Heifer calves that are to go with him can even be brought here to be weaned with him, so they know each other prior to delivery.

Once a deposit is received (25%) you will get my 5+ page Yak Care Guide and other nutritional articles on yaks. Please call (719-495-9155) or email Lynda...no texts please
