Bison.

Boss Bison Ranch

A ranch with about 180 acres and 60 bison. A gift shop sells bison meat and a lunch wagon serves everything bison. We enjoyed watching the herd graze as we ate. There were bulls mixed with the mothers and calves. We loaded in the back of the farm truck and were driven out to meet the head bull. Big Boy was tall and very muscular. His head was huge, yet he was the gentlest of giants. He took his treats carefully from my children and me. We met other bison, Bobby and Snitch, and asked what we owed for meeting the animals. We were told "just a donation in the box." That's what we did.
