More views from the farms we’ve been visiting for research.
LOVE the llama header. Oh, wait. Alpacas. LOVE the alpaca header. And that bison pic is pretty damn scenic. Stateside, I think ALL bison/buffalo are grass-fed. Is that true in Canada, too?
I’m not sure if all bison are grass-fed or not – it may be that since they haven’t had much selective breeding, they don’t do well on an acid-forming high grain diet and don’t put weight on the way feeder/finishing cattle do. It seems like a pretty hands-off commodity, and there seem to be bulls mixed in with the cows and calves, so maybe they just leave them to their own devices and jump them off a cliff at the end of the season.
the last being a reference to the traditional way of slaughter, to match a traditional way of ‘raising’ them: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Head-Smashed-In_Buffalo_Jump
