Max Armstrong recalls the early excitement about ‘beefalo’ which is a mix of bison and traditional beef. Those cattle crosses are still around and a website – americanbeefaloassociation.com – offers information about these cattle. Max shares information about the crossbreed cattle that are heartier, more economical and require less care. They can also withstand colder temps, but also are cooler in summer. There are also other special benefits of raising these cattle crosses.
