WOOD RIVER, Neb. (AP) â€” A small herd of purebred bison has been relocated to a few square miles in central Nebraska, where vast herds once roamed over the tallgrass prairie.
The 39 cows and calves arrived Saturday at their new homes on Crane Trust land southwest of Grand Island. They were trucked in from Rimrock Ranch near Crawford in the Nebraska Panhandle. Two bulls are expected to join them this week.
"When you're a bull, you travel on your own schedule. All a human can offer is encouragement," said Chuck Cooper, president and chief executive officer of the Crane Trust.
