Handling

Buffalo are not cattle. Handling bison with respect and distance.

If you are loading or unloading, give them time and space. The more you crowd them the more frantic and faster they become. Any wire gates should have something on them that the buffalo can see. Like plastic or wood. If they can’t see it being solid they will try to go though it., there by injuring themselves.

At home in the new pen. let them set for a couple of days to get over the journey there and their new surroundings. Maybe leave the arena gate open for them to go in and out of on their own. If you are turning them out to pasture, make sure they understand where the feed (grain) & water is kept. (gathering pen) .If you have enough calves, you might want to only turn out half of them first. They will want to stay with the ones that are still penned.

Do Not Work them the first day you get them !!!! With all the articles, video
and advertising, believe it or not there are still people out there working them off the truck.
I cannot stress enough on how much damage you are doing to the calves and your own reputation.
