Old West Returns:
In Them Thar Hills
By ARLENE HOBEK
Staff Writer '
The days of the roaming cows
of the plains aren't as much a
part of history as you may think.
Rod Peterson, freshman in pre
med, spends his free time riding
herd on 22 buffalo who pasture
on 50 acres of his father's farm
Riding herd on the majestic bis
ons is a risky as well as unique
experience. Buffalos aren't afraid
of horses, and can outrun them
without using all their go-power. The
only defenses of the herder are
his shotgun and his wits. When
rounding up a stray, the herder
sprays the animal with buckshot,
which won't penetrate his thick
hide, but will scare him. After
the pelleting, Peterson must play
cat and mouse with the buffalo,
following and outsmarting the ani
mal until it is back on the range.
If you think our society has a
rigid code, be glad you're not a
buffalo. When a buffalo strays he
becomes an outcast and the herd
will not let him back in. During
the spring mating season many of
the animals stray. Last spring a 2,
000 pound buffalo had to be shot by
the game warden because of the
"once you go, don't come back"
attitude of the herd.
A strange statue of the buffalo
by-laws violates the law of the
struggle for survival. An angered
buffalo will fight himself to death.
When a bison wants out of a cor
ral, he'll get out or kill himself
hying. The animal will butt and
ram his head against the barrier
until the structure gives way or
he dies from a brain concussion.
Dr. Theodore Peterson thought
it would be a novelty having buf
falo on his farm. He bought five
yearlings from the Bison Range at
Valentine in 1949. The buff colored
calves resemble domestic cattle,
but are much hardier. A new
born buffalo calf will begin runn
ing within minutes after his birth.
Feeding the herd is no problem,
They eat anything from short
grass to corn, cob and all. They
eat grass that the cattle won't eat.
The Peterson's get an indirect
enjoyment from raising the buf
falos. They enjoy having people
filled with curiosity come up and
ask in unbelieving thin voices, "Do
you really have buffalo?" "I
like having the buffalo around,"
Rod said, "because its something
no one else has."
