New Texas Law: Bison are Protected

As of September 1, bison have been added to the list of possible “estray livestock” protected by Texas law reported the Texas Tribune. That means if they get loose, whoever finds them has to try and locate their owner. If they cannot, local authorities have to hold the animals. If the animal(s) are unclaimed for two weeks, they can be sold at public auction.

In 2010, King County rancher, Wayne Kirk, lost 51 buffalo. The animals broke through his fence and wandered repeatedly onto a neighbor’s ranch. The frustrated neighbor shot and killed them. Kirk had no recourse because the animals were not protected at the time.

The new law also has a provision where the animals can be immediately disposed of by any means “if a perilous condition exists.”

The Best High Protein Foods That Help Build Muscle - Bison - Men's ...
Bison is one of the best protein foods to help build muscle.
Bison is a beef alternative that’s catching on more and more. Bison is markedly leaner than beef with a 3.5-ounce serving containing only 2–3 grams of fat compared with 8–9 grams in a comparable cut of beef. This also translates into bison containing 33% fewer calories than beef, making it a perfect protein source when you’re in the latter stages of getting lean and calories are at a premium. A study published this year found more favorable changes in cardiovascular disease risk factors when study participants ate 12 ounces of bison per day versus 12 ounces of beef.

        Topsoil - the bottomline of productivity
By: Ben Tyler - Texas EcoLogix

We're all familiar with topsoil, but what is it exactly? Obviously, beyond being the top layer of soil or a medium for propping up plants, soil is a living and breathing microbial ecosystem upon which all our lives depend. There are more beneficial bacteria in one spoonful of healthy soil than people on the planet. Some of them fix nitrogen from the atmosphere into soil or plant roots to be synthesized into proteins while others decompose organic residues and improve soil structure. Beneficial fungi such as mycorrhizae carry nutrients and water to plant roots in a symbiotic association. A dizzying number of species interact with each other in a soil food web which produces fertility for sustainable agricultural productivity. Soil organic matter generates humus and humates which perform many beneficial functions including extensive nutrient and water holding capacity.
It is very important to take care of soil by being mindful of compaction and excessive tillage. Unimaginable amounts of precious topsoil are carried to the sea each year by erosion from bare soils. Permanent perennial grasses are the most effective at building and holding topsoil. Microbial populations can be boosted by the application of compost and liquid bio-boosters. Soil can be aerated by chisel plowing subsoiling or core extraction.

New research: Bison dung, prairie plants, and mammoth inferences  Posted by September 9, 2013 ⋅ 

What happens when large herbivores disappear from landscapes? Much of my research to date has used the extinction of the Pleistocene megafauna as a natural experiment, documenting the cascading effects of the loss of large herbivores on the plant communities they left behind. To do this, I marshall the paleoecological record preserved in lakes, reconstructing plant communities with fossil pollen. Megaherbivores are a bit trickier. Since the fossil bone record is spotty through space and time, I’ve instead used a different “proxy” to reconstruct the presence and absence of megaherbivores: a genus of dung fungus called Sporormiella.

                              Bison in Esto'k gna is said WAKATE( wah kaha te)

      Esto'k gna is the name of the people that give me my Identity. In the English and Spanish Language, we are called Carrizo/Comecrudo. We are named by those that new little about us, because of our Lifeways. We lived in "Reed" house called Wama'k, so the Spaniards used the word Carrizo. Later the after Mexico got it independence from Spain, the Mexican people called us Comecrudo or "eats raw" in English, mainly for eating man raw vegetables. Again I emphasize the names were given to us by people that only observed the basic ways of life. Carrizo/Comecrudo are not Coahuiltecos yet we are the oldest tribal language in Texas. We were here prior to the Uto-Aztecan and Athabascan speakers. Our Dialect is Hokom similar to the people called Cahuilla, Pomo and other tribes along the southwest and up to Oregon. Our language was recorded in a 1886 By German linguist A. S. Gatschett. The language can be found at the Smithsonian Bulletin 127, but the facts are documented in the bulletin.
           Inherent in our Lifeways lies our connection to the Creation of the Creator. A connection that is strongly connected to the four legged, plants, crawlers, swimmers, and winged. Our interest in those relatives is indicated by relationship with those that kept able to survive. We honored that which gave us life. The Bear, Deer, mountain lion, badgers, hawks, eagles, we honored all these as relatives. And each of these relatives give an identity to our place in Circle of life. That is why we call them lifeways it is about being part of the Creation not above it or less than it. Life is a process directed by a greater power. We as the two legged need are only a part of the creation. We have the ability to reach an understanding that will lead us to make wise choice that connects to past and future. We learn from the past to make a better world for our relatives in the future. Somehow the understanding of being a bridge between the past and future has not been reached.
                   I just want to thank those Individuals who have savored the insight to be able to bring life to at least one of the Texas Native species like the Bison. Knowing that a White Bison was killed in the late 1870's around Snyder, was always a disheartening issue for this indigenous man growing up on the South Plains of Texas. But seeing the great efforts in Texas to bring the Texas Herd back privately and publicly is hope for the survival of species and culture that connected to that species. Both Federally Recognized and Unrecognized indigenous and autochthonous tribes to Texas hold special place honor to the Bison. The white Bison is revered by all the Plains Cultures. It would be good to enter into dialogue with individuals that help bring spirit of the Bison back into the identities of People.
                    It has been difficult growing up Native in Texas, we were always seen as heathens if practiced our Tribal ways, and because of this many lost their ties to their Tribal Ancestral Identity. It is difficult to be who you are born to be if you have ask permission to do your Ceremonies. We are still needing to preserve and maintain our Tribal ways and send our voices so the Bison can hear us. Having a place to do these things are things that are needed to continue doing the good work toward the Bison Herds. So help us to help you maintain the spirit of Indigenous Texas through the return of the Bison. The Wakate will again help in the survival of the Texas Indigenous People.

The goal of the project is to "examine the effects of an increased bison population on grassland production, nitrogen cycling, and species composition."

Bison, it's better than you think! 

Steak is usually my go to meat, throw it on a grill, cooked medium and sprinkled with sea salt. I know red meat is really high in fat so it's not always the greatest thing to eat frequently but a little while ago I came across Bison meat. I tastes very similar to beef, lots of flavor but it is nearly as lean as turkey. I was shocked at how good it tasted even though it had such a low fat content. The only downside is the price, Bison does cost more than beef but I'm beginning to think that I prefer it over beef.

But bison are indigenous to America, and although they were incredibly important to American Indians for thousands of years, they weren’t ever domesticated. Even in the 21st century the bison remains an important symbol of the freedom and wildness of the American West.
