Ranchers Find Hope in Flightless Bird’s Fat
Jim RobbinsHAMILTON, Mont. — The Wild Rose Emu Ranch is a survivor in an unusual business.
In 1998, there were some 5,500 farms and ranches across the country raising emus, the gawky, five- to six-foot-tall flightless birds; now, the best guess is that there are 1,000 to 2,000. Once, emus were viewed as a potential growth industry, a godsend to struggling farmers.
But the industry’s downward trajectory may have been stayed.
