Criminal Massacre of American Buffalo

By Max McD in Overland Monthly.

The passing of the buffalo Is one of the greatest scandals of all history. Out of the one-time vast number of bison that roamed and held the great American plans as their own, there remain but few.

For unrecorded ages the bison he all the fertile grazing land of this continent as their own. The greater part of these herds were in the South and West, but when Europeans began to settle in America, small herds of the animate were occasionally seen near the Atlantic coast, though they were generally rare everywhere east of the Appalachian Mountains. From Kentucky across the continent to Nevada, from the Great Slave Lake on the north of Georgia on the south, the bison wandered in mighty droves, migrating as snowstorms and drought dictated.

“Wide, rolling plains, blackened as far as the sharp eyes of the settler could reach with huge, shaggy, humped backed beasts, bellowing, fighting and pawing the earth until it trembled as though an earthquake approached.

It is almost impossible for the average person of today to realize what the numbers of these herds amounted to, though an idea may be formed from the statement of Colonel Dodge in a report to the United States national museum. In making a journey through Arkansas, he passed through a continuous herd of buffalo for twenty-five miles. (read more)

Nature up close: Bison in winter

Another way of stating the differences is that the male mountain bison has low surface-to-volume ratios. That is, a male mountain bison has less 
surface area in comparison to his body's total volume, which allows them to withstand cold better. That isn't true for female and young mountain bison who have higher surface-to-volume ratios than mature males. Maybe that is why the former are more likely to move out of the park to lower, less snowy elevations in the winter. They aren't as well-adapted to the cold. They also aren't as good at moving snow out of the way to get to the grass they need to survive. ...

California-Importing bison meat?

Question: My cousin in Wyoming invited me to go bison hunting next year in November. Are there any restrictions on bringing back bison meat to California? (Seth)

Answer: As bison are not of the family Cervidae, they are not subject to chronic wasting disease import restrictions. You will, however, need to fill out a Declaration of Entry form. Keep all licenses and/or tags required in Wyoming to take bison on your person and be ready to present them as you cross over any state lines.

USDA Releases Final Guidance on Labeling
(From Specialty Food News)


The USDA has issued final guidance on serving sizes and dual column labeling on Nutrition Facts labels. It finalizes draft guidance that was issued back in November 2018. 
Changes from the draft guidance include providing additional background information in response to a question regarding reference amounts customarily consumed for non-juice beverages for infants and young children, modifying a question and response concerning whether the Nutrition Facts label for products sold in small packages must list all nutrients of insignificant amounts, and modifying the response to a question regarding the placement of the Nutrition Facts and Supplement Facts labels to clarify that the labels should not be placed on the bottom of packages.
 
Compliance with the updated regulation was required by January 1, 2020. During the first 6 months following the January 1, 2020 compliance date, the FDA plans to work cooperatively with manufacturers to meet the new Nutrition Facts label requirements and will not focus on enforcement actions regarding these requirements during that time. FDA intends to exercise enforcement discretion to give manufacturers of single-ingredient sugars such as honey and maple syrup, and certain cranberry products, until July 1, 2021, to comply.
