Couldn't find any in PA.

Google => "yak farms"

Nebraska - http://turkeyhillyaks.com/About.html

Minnesota - http://www.yak-man.com/

Colorado - http://www.yampayaks.com/



PS: Does your friend talk back a lot?

(Sorry, just couldn't resist.)

Colorado seems to be the place to buy a Yak from what I found.. probably cause they are pretty wooly..

WHY does he want a Yak?? hmmmm I am still asking that, probably cause he has about everything else..

Beware - if the seller is yelling "Yakkity yak, don't come back!" after the departing trailer in which your new purchase rides, you are in big trouble!

Duh! Go to http://www.yaktopia.com

They have a very good forum there, too. My handle there is WoolyFace

If their sight doesn't come up though, I think they are having some maintenance done...

I have a friend in Russellville - where Cascy lives - that has a Yak stud and 5 Alpaca broodmares. He raises Yakpacas, which are very popular in Arkansas. They are great for little kids because they can't run or buck due to the weight of their coats, and can't bite through all that hair. The only real drawback is they can't see through the hair either, so they walk into trees and barns and sometimes into rivers and ponds...

Check flyers for exotic animal sales. There was actually a yak sold at auction
at a zoo that was closing.
I think they are really cute!
