BABB — A huge herd of bison will be grazing the prairie just south of the Canadian border this spring. That's when Double T Bison Ranch will stock 10,000 acres with 850 head of the big, shaggy animals whose offspring will be destined for meat markets across the country.

Double T Bison Ranch will be situated on private land on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation on both sides of U.S. Highway 89 north of Babb. It will be operated by a parent company called Golden Bison, which is owned by billionaire businessman Joe Ricketts, the founder of Omaha, Neb.-based TD Ameritrade.

The Double T is Golden Bison's first ranch. Golden Bison's sister company, Jackson Fork Ranch, owns a grass-fed bison operation in Wyoming.

Ricketts is a longtime proponent of the health benefits of bison meat, including lower fat and cholesterol. His family is the majority owner of the Chicago Cubs, which serves many bison products at Wrigley Field.
