Yaks at The Farm at Walnut Creek

Yak are herd animals who spend the majority of their time grazing on mountain plains, eating grass, herbs, and wildflowers. Yaks live at the highest altitude of any mammal and have firm, dense horns which they use to break through snow in order to get plans buried underneath. In the winter, yak can survive temperatures as low as -40 degrees! Unlike other cattle, yaks grunt instead of the typical “mooing” like other cattle.

Yaks usually give birth in June. A female yak gives birth to a single calf every other year. The mother will find a secluded spot to give birth. Once born, the calf is able to walk within about ten minutes and the pair will rejoin the herd.
