Eating bison meat is a delicious way to enjoy red meat without the guilt. No matter how good white meat can be, it will never truly satiate the craving for red meat. Buffalo, probably the reddest meat you’ll ever see, is pretty good for you. A portion of roast buffalo has far less fat than beef. When you compare the protein, bison meat wins hands down. Buffalo has 40% more protein, and is significantly leaner.

Eat Buffalo Meat and Feel Great!
There was a time when buffalo were endangered, but worry not, these animals have made a huge comeback. Citing information from the Canadian Bison Association: “In 1996 when the first census of the bison industry was taken, there were just over 45,000 bison on 745 farms in Canada. That had grown to an estimated 145,000 in 2001 on almost 1,900 farms. The number of farms raising bison remained at just under 1900 in 2006 and the herd grew to almost 200,000 head. In 2011 the census reported just over 125,000 animals on 1,211 farms and ranches.” Most bison are located in Manitoba, Canada where there are tracks of land with thousands of acres being used to raise bison. Our bison graze of these enormous tracks of land. They do not live in barns…ever. In winter, they supplement their feeding with hay laid down for them but mostly these hardy, healthy beauties dig right through the snow to find grass. The environment is faring better with bison making such a comeback due to the enormous areas of land now being reserved for these magnificent and tasty creatures.
