Official Antler of The Great Indy Pet Expo

Mohlman Elk Farm

At a time when understanding the source of your pet’s food and treats is of the most importance, we are offering our attendees antlers that are raised and harvested in Nebraska with no middleman. Eric and Kim Mohlman breed their own stock and have for 26 years. Their farm is known as Mohlman Elk Farm (MEF). They offer the highest quality product we’ve seen and our expo attendees rave about them. And there is truly no question they can’t answer about the production process, the benefits, or what type of antler might match your dog’s chewing habits.
 
The elk antler MEF uses for their dog chews is grown on their bulls every summer and takes about 110 days from the time it starts growing to when it turns hard and is ready to be used for chews. None of their elk are harmed in any way as the elk antlers fall off naturally and they grow another new set the following summer. The ultimate renewable resource! No drugs or chemicals are used in the production or cleaning on the elk antler. It is 100% natural elk antler.
 
Check our Mohlman Elk Farm for yourself on Facebook to see some of the elk that are producing thes great antlers!
