Ranch Tours

We have raised all our buffalo from calves and we feel this is the key to having calm and approachable animals. By bringing the calves in young they bond to the land and caregivers. I visit my herd on a daily basis and they recognize my voice, giving me respect and allowing me to pass freely. They are quite curious by nature and come right up to the fence when company arrives. We have had visitors from all over the country and many parts of the world stop and take pictures of our animals.

A good time to visit is in the late spring when the calves are born, and quite cute. As you can see, they are quite small weighing only 40 pounds or so and have a light brown coat.

The calves grow quite rapidly from the rich milk provided by
their mothers. Buffalo are excellent mothers and are extremely
protective of their babies.

Willie the Wildcat from Kansas State University 
came to visit the buffalo.

Ft. Riley brought 30 visiting officers from Afghanistan to tour the ranch and learn about American buffalo.

We give them plenty of hay to eat and to sleep on.
