Thread Name: What do ranchers raise?
Subject: RE: What do ranchers raise?
Elk and buffalo ranches are big now. Near Cimmaron, NM, saw a herd of some 2500 buffalo on one ranch- quite a sight! Stopped and commiserated with a bull leaning on the fence- he seemed tuckered out.
In Alberta, elk are raised for the velvet on their horns and other parts which are sold to Asia. Elk venison is also produced and is in the grocery stores now, along with the buffalo. Venison, another of those imposed Norman words.
