Great action shot, Stan! Are these beasts of burden, or do you just raise them for the beef, and cool photos?

Beef is mostly a term used for the meat of cattle. We call Bison, meat or buffalo meat. And in general cattle are no longer used as beasts of burden. Those animals are Ox or Oxen, used in the 1800's to pulls the heavy wagons across this nation. I believe that there are very few of the breed in existence in the United States today. The bison is a wild animal and is a very difficult animal to tame. I only know of one person that had worked with buffalo and that was a novelty act at rodeos. Bison are very unpredictable and very moody you don't go into their pen on foot alone, this animal is very fast. Buffalo these days are cross breed with cattle to produce a product called beefalo which makes the meat very lean with a slight hint of wildness. Thanks so much for asking and viewing. Stan

Interesting. I learn something from you every time. Could have been Beefalo I tasted, then! I've never been to a rodeo, but it sounds like fun. I've been to a few bull fights though, and that is very sad/scary stuff, to me!!!

I'm not a big fan of bullfights, unless the bull wins. I think you would enjoy a rodeo but there are some aspects that with out knowledge of its original purpose could be considered cruel.

Which ones? It's not very pretty when the bull wins, either though that's rare. It's really a rigged game, they do a lot of stuff to the bull before the Matador even steps into the ring. Presumably, it gets the bull even more aggressive, but yeah, it's a really strange ritual in some ways.
