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.
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.
Love this year’s calendar! Would love to see more seasonal photos throughout this year. And I’ve been enjoying your bison steaks for years!
We ate our first meal with Truly Grass Fed Bison today. It was highly anticipated. My husband and I served and ate in silence. Almost a reverence atmosphere in the air filled the dinning room. It is an honor to eat such an amazing animal. The flavor of this meat is superior to any other meat we’ve had. Thank you for the wonderful job you are doing. Maybe one day we’ll visit the farm. That would be an amazing dream come true.
Belated Christmas Greetings and a huge thank you for the photos!
Merci de partager ces belles photos. J’ai visité votre ranche au mois de juin 2017 avec le groupe UIAD de Grenoble (France). Quels contrastes au niveau des paysages et des températures, la riviére Cheyenne gelée !!! Les bisons sont magnifiques dans leur élément naturel.
Great photos. Although they are more than acclimated to living in that climate, I am not. Just looking gives me a chill.That’s why I hang my hat in Florida.
