Winter Photos & Facts

As the Winter Solstice approaches and the temperatures drop and the snow starts to fly, most of us bundle up and prepare for the elements.

The buffalo have bundled up too, in their natural, woolly, winter coats. 

Their thick layers of fur allow them to withstand temperatures of minus forty degrees below zero.

When the snow is heavy, they use their big heads, supported by the muscles in their hump to push through the the snow and forge for food if necessary. 

Wild Idea’s buffalo roam over large prairie landscapes 365 days a year, much like they did hundreds of years ago.

This is not true of all bison companies.

The majority (90%) of the bison raised in this country and in Canada for food, are raised in the cattle feedlot model. 

 

Not us. 

Bison are the largest native herbivore on the American Great Plains. They evolved not only to survive on the always-changing prairie landscape, but to thrive.

Bison can run up to forty miles per hour, jump up to six feet vertically, pivot quickly on their tiny hooves, and are also strong swimmers.
We think allowing the buffalo to be buffalo is critical in their health, our environments health and our health. And, we thank you for caring about those issues too. 
 
Wishing you all a wonderful Winter Solstice! jill
