Beefalo, a bison-cattle hybrid, is being touted as the healthy meat of the future

Not that Thier should be more animals raised for meat.


But beefalo does have its opponents.

“We just don’t think there should be beefalo,” said Martha McFarland, farmland viability coordinator for the advocacy group Practical Farmers of Iowa. She also raises cattle and bison, but said she would never mix the two.

“Nature did just fine producing bison. It’s an excellent animal that also is good to eat, and mixing it with cows is not necessary and weakens the genetic line of the bison.”
