The Elk & Bison Company, LLC was founded in 1995 and is owned by Steve Wolcott and his wife, Linda Lindsey. The company initially put on numerous elk and bison auctions. Because of demand, Elk & Bison quickly became a one-stop shopping location for specialty supplies and equipment for elk farmers and ranchers. The company offered one of the first cubicle systems that did not require onsite welding. Steve designed a manual squeeze for his own use and it quickly became a best seller because of its many benefits. The Elk and Bison Co designs and builds all of its handling systems on the ranch in western Colorado.

Steve Wolcott is a known expert in the elk industry. He and his wife, Linda Lindsey, have been raising elk since 1985. He has been president of North American Elk Breeders Association, the Colorado Elk and Game Breeders Association, a member of the Colorado Alternative Livestock Board, the US Animal Health Association and the Elk Research Council. He is quite well known and spends time on the phone every day helping others in the elk business.

We have been forced to raise some prices because of the extreme rise in the cost of steel. It has doubled in some cases. We have been told to expect further price increases. The price on the Velvet Tub manual squeeze is now $5200. You will need to call us for a current price. We have some pasture gates and cubicle components in stock, as well as steel for these items that we purchased before the price of steel went up, so those prices won't change until the stock is gone. Fencing has been affected. We have not raised prices on wire we have in stock, but it is almost gone. We have been able to find some good deals on tightlock wire in 500 ft rolls. Call for current prices.

Handling Systems:

State of the Art Cubicle System
Nothing works better than a cubicle system for
ease of handling, reducing stress on elk and you.
Animals stand quietly, move quickly and easily.

Elk in Facility
The Elk & Bison Co. system offers these advantages:

  • Components--swing gates, slide gates, and panels, are interchangeable and pin together on site, no welding required.  Wood inserts reduce noise, keep elk calm.
  • We will help you custom design to fit your barn, your herd, your special needs.  Systems can be easily re-configured as you move or expand.
  • Simple, heavy-duty latches on bow gates, with positive safety latch.  No tight tolerances to get mis-aligned.
  • Quiet, easy rollers on slide gates.
  • Works with manual or hydraulic squeezes.



Basic System Includes "Velvet Tub"
(using your barn walls as the back of the cubicles)

Component Prices:

6' Swing Gate - $250
8' Swing Gate - $270
6' Slide Gate - $380
8' Slide Gate - $435

Tie Pipes - $15

Basic System Price: $7,900

Prices quoted are painted, without wood. FOB Paonia, CO.

These components pin together without welding. The basic
system shown above is one possible configuration. Systems
can be smaller, larger, shaped differently depending on the
space you have and the size of your herd. You can start
small and easily expand as your herd grows.
We will be glad to discuss your particular needs and help
design a system to suit your specific situation.
