BISON BREEDING
COL. STANTON’S FINE HERD AT BISMARCK GROVE
“Cleveland” the Handsomeness Specimen of a Race Almost Extinct - Valuable Information Given by the Proprietor of the Garden City Herd.

PRIDE OF THE HERD
while the bison at Bismarck Grove are splendid specimens of their class, ‘Cleveland’ is decidedly the pride of the herd and as grand a creature as ever trod the soil of Kansas on four legs. He is just six years old and is a perfect specimen of the kings of the plains. There is a royal blood in his veins and his code is finer than the imperial purple. It is not possible to get at him to measure his stature and weigh him, but as he stands in the past year he appears to be as tall as a thoroughbred Norman-Percheron stallion and as massive as an elephant direct from the jungles. He must weigh fully 3,000 pounds, and it is doubtful is there is today living on the face of the earth a handsomer buffalo bull then he. His fur is just now in its best state, even thick and compact, while the long hair on his neck and legs is of a glossy seal brown. As he turns and faces the visitor, one can imagine what it must have been to see countless thousands roaming on the plains and to hear the thunder of their hooves in a stampede. “Cleveland’s” disposition is not so ugly as old Barney’s was, but at certain seasons he is very wild and there is no one venturesome enough to go into the inclosure. It is then not altogether safe to even look over the high in heavy board fence at him, for he is likely to make a run for the visitor, as the numerous holes in the fence where he has knocked off the boards will testify.
Colonel Stanton is very proud of his herd, particularly of Cleveland, and he has a right to be. He would rather lose his best hotel that his buffalo, nor would any cash price induce him to part with them. He will probably, in the near future, place them in a more convenient location and tend to breeding them and crossbreeding with cattle. He certainly has a splendid foundation to begin on and it is a lucrative business, a single buffalo been worth more than of whole drove of common cattle.

A Taste of the Wild Life
Patrons at the buffet line for the Frontier Buffet at Greenbo Lake State Resort Park on Saturday night. It was the park's first attempt at a Frontier Buffet.
     When this blanket of snow at the end of February melts gently into the landscape the steady crescendo into the symphony of spring will paint an idyllic image of green abundance.  If only the real world were that simple.  Simple may be adequate and elegant but it misses the opportunities found in nuance, diversity and productivity.

     What I'm hinting at is that since we live in a place where drastic change in weather is the norm, maximize the potential for positive productivity while improving the ecosystem and landscape with proper processes.  A healthy and resilient grazing landscape has a diversity of grasses, forbs and useful woody species which interact with each other for positive mutual effects.  Appropriate grazing management is effective at putting the spent biomass from grazing animals in the form of manure back into the soil bank which holds moisture and nutrients and allows for upward succession of higher quality forage with faster regrowth/regeneration and lower external off-farm inputs.  Better forage equals better gains and animal health while lowering overhead expenses.  Now you're getting synchronized with nature's well oiled machine instead of fighting against her.  Nature always wins, I prefer to be on her team. 

Simple moves you should make:

1. Graze smarter, not harder   Set stocked, continuous grazing is killing your productivity and biodiversity. You won't regret planned grazing.

2. Plant seasonally appropriate food plots   Take advantage of high energy seasonal crops that maximize potential gains and lower inputs.

3. Feed your soil microbes and increase microbial diversity with bio-inoculants.

   Southern Plains Pointers

February in the Southern Plains is a time for questions and checking the management-boxes for preparedness to leave the herd alone throughout the calving season. Some of those questions and boxes are:
  • Am I feeding them too much in the last trimester?
  • Is my mineral program up to speed?
  • Do I have an orphan kit organized?
  • Are my herd populations in balance with my grass through July/August?
  • Does the herd ‘appear’ healthy?
Personally I don’t like handling or changing up the populations during the calving season. The less we impact their world while they are calving, the better it seems to go. ‘They’ have been ‘at this’ for thousands of years and posses all the instinctual tools to benefit mostly from our absence. We just need to set’em up right, and they’ll handle it from there. If you haven’t set your herd up to benefit from your absence by balancing the habitat to the population – get busy so you can sit back and let nature work. There’s still time, just not an excess of it. Green-up and red-dots are just around the corner…

Letter: Bison reintroduction article paints skewed picture

While the National Bison Association is delighted with the reintroduction of bison at the CSU Foothills Campus, we are disappointed that the article in Wednesday’s Coloradoan contained the inaccurate claim that these were the first genetically pure bison to be seen in Northern Colorado since the days of Abraham Lincoln.

This type of statement falsely implies that private bison ranchers are deliberately crossing their animals with cattle. Yes, some bison carry traces of cattle genetics, which are the remnants of some experiments conducted briefly by some of the five ranchers who helped save the species from extinction 120 years ago.

But the National Bison Association's Code of Ethics strictly prohibits ranchers from crossing bison with any other species, and many ranchers today are conducting DNA testing to remove the animals that carry cattle genetics. Today's bison herds are brucellosis free with the exception of the Yellowstone National Park herd.

David Carter lives in Westminster.
