WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BUFFALO AND BISON?

Not everyone knows the difference between buffalo and bison. Calling a bison a buffalo is inaccurate, but a common mistake. It’s so common, in fact, that we sometimes use the two interchangeably. But if you really want to know the difference between a buffalo and a bison, the American Bison is native to North and South America and Europe, while the other two buffalo species reside in Africa and Asia. Bison and buffalo share the same family, but there are over 38 types of buffalo and, unlike bison, many of them have been domesticated.

A few more fun facts; North American bison have a beard, while their Asian relatives don’t and American Bison can live in really cold places, like Wyoming!

Today, buffalo are thriving due to smart management and breeding efforts and restoration of their native grazing land. By purchasing our free-range, all-natural meat, you are helping to continue a ranching tradition that has been a way of life here in the Mountain West for hundreds of years.
