2018 Latest Arrivals

Photos by Jill O'Brien

This past week our first buffalo calves arrived on the Cheyenne River Ranch! It is always such an exciting time. A time that is full of hope and possibilities, making one believe that our mission of prairie regeneration can continue to grow. Here are a few photos, with brief explanations.

After the mother cleans the calf, she encourages it to get up right away.

The new calf will be up and on the move within two hours of it being born.

The rest of the herd is close by relaxing in the spring weather, with the buffalo birds twittering (my kind of twitter) all about with excitement.

  • ah, I was wondering when the babies would be showing up! everything associated with Cheyenne River Ranch is blessed! We are patiently planning our trip to your area, although not sure of when it will be. Until then I am feasting on Wild Idea Buffalo products while attempting to get the birds unique to your area locked in my memory – sure don’t want bird books to become an bulky item to lug around. Enjoy the fits and starts of spring with its ephemeral nature before the potential heat and dryness of summer. very thankful for all that you are doing to restore the prairie and its denizens!

  • If we traveled West, is it possible to visit your ranch to see your herds first hand?
