Its closest relatives are the European Bison, or Wisent, and the Canadian Woods Bison, not the buffalo of Asia or Africa, such as the Cape Buffalo or Water Buffalo. Scientifically, the American Buffalo is named Bison and belongs to the Bovidae family of mammals, as do domestic cattle. Because our history has so ingrained in us the name "buffalo," we still use it, although "bison" and "buffalo" are used interchangeably.
A brief history Bison once roamed the plains in numbers so great that early explorers could not count them. They were variously described as: "numbers-numberless," "the country was one black robe," and "the plains were black and appeared as if in motion." The bison has been called the most important wild animal in the development of North America. They were the center of life of the Plains Indians, providing them with food, clothing, shelter, and much of their culture. Bison also sustained the lives of the explorers and settlers going West. By the late 1800's, bison were dangerously close to extinction. Through efforts of early conservationists and ranchers who knew the value of bison, they are no longer an endangered species. Bison are again a central part of the lives of some Americans, and their numbers have increased to over 300,000 in public and private herds in North America.

Ostrich has found a place on the world's menu, delivering
red meat flavor with two-thirds less fat! Already a popular menu item at
upscale American and European restaurants, ostrich is poised to become
"the premier red meat of the next century," says The National
Culinary Review. The reason is simple . . . no meat combines the flavor,
versatility and nutritional benefits of ostrich. Now available throughout the
United States, ostrich is passing the test of consumer acceptance. Easily
prepared by the homemaker, it still allows fine chefs to demonstrate their
culinary skills. Ostrich is similar in taste, texture and appearance to beef.
It's comparable to beef in iron and protein content, but ostrich has less than
half the fat of chicken and two-thirds less fat than beef and pork. Ostrich
beats the competition with fewer calories, too. That's why ostrich is the
choice of health-conscious consumers who refuse to sacrifice flavor. Cuts rated
Tender should be grilled, broiled, fried or pan-fried. Medium Tender cuts
should be cooked in liquid or braised. All cuts can be roasted, cured or served
as kabobs or stir fry. Meat from the leg is usually ground or processed.
Because of its low fat content, ostrich cooks faster than other meat products.
Steaks and whole muscles should be cooked medium rare to medium. Cooking
ostrich to well done is not recommended.
