Often the question arises how much Buffalo should my Beefalo have? Beefalo should have anywhere from 17 to 37.5 percent Bison. (The true name of Buffalo is Bison but the two are used interchangeably.) For some reason some think they must have exactly 3/8th or 37.5 percent Bison content to be true Beefalo. Many think the "Fullblood" (37.5% bison content) Beefalo are superior. Experience shows us though that this is not the case. There are many Beefalo that have lower percentages of bison blood that are outstanding individuals. When you start infusing Bison into domestic cattle, you can get a wide variety of traits. In the case of Beefalo it's not just the amount of bison, but the overall quality of the animal. Look at the examples below. Can you tell by looking at these cows their exact percentage of bison? Highly unliikely. Cow #1 is a 17.45 percent bison cow. #2 is a 25 percent bison cow. and #3 is a Fullblood 37.5 percent cow. It's time to start judging Beefalo on the quality of the animal. Not how much Bison they have.
