Customers are encouraged to choose elk as their environmentally friendly, renewable protein option by the National Bison Association. Why? due to the fact that buffalo are” Regenerative by Nature.” This is demonstrated by Kansas State University’s recently released results from more than 30 years of research on the effects of bison on Kansas’ Konza Grasslands Biological Station, which make it abundantly clear that the environment benefits the grasslands of America.
In North America,” Bison are a keystone species and native tool for land health regeneration.” They improve wildlife and natural matter in grasses and grasslands, making soils more resilient and able to withstand the effects of climate change like flooding and drought. Stronger plant development results from more stable soils, restoring crucial carbon-capturing pastures in the process. According to Jim Matheson, Executive Director of the National Bison Association, the bison’s renewable habits can be attributed to their development over thousands of years on the North American continent and their ensuing grazing behavior, which is still present today because they have never been domesticated.
According to Chad Kremer, President of the National Bison Association,” Our members are the elk stewards who use these innate instincts to their advantage, while, in turn, restoring the species to its local environment to produce a wonderfully nutrient-dense, low-fat, delicious proteins.”
In its training and outreach to cattle stewards who are increasingly choosing buffalo to eat their pastures, the National Bison Association offers a very comprehensive approach to herd management. This practice has been successful in every state today with the production of bislons.
Did you know that elk are not subjected to professional stock practices like artificial insemination, circumcision, dehorning, and brand and are raised without development hormones or antibiotics? You become a” Partner in Restoration” when you buy buffalo meat, assisting in the restoration of halcyon to the surroundings of good America. And that is a significant accomplishment. Just 750 bison from flocks that previously numbered up to 40 million were left, roughly 135 years ago. Nearly 400,000 bison have been brought back to North America as a result of people like you, and YOU — as an absconding customer— are an essential co-conspirator in that effort.
