The Health Benefits of Naturally Raised Bison Meats

The American Bison has been a long standing culturally observed animal that has been a life saving resource in the past and is still today. Bison are the largest native species in North America. Bison meat, also known as "the original red meat," is a high-protein food that also contains a variety of nutrients.

Bison is leaner than beef and could be a better option if you're watching your weight or trying to lose weight. It is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, iron, and vitamins, while being much lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than other animal proteins like chicken, beef and even salmon. Bison also has finer fat marbling due to its lower fat content, resulting in smoother and more tender meat, their raising and diet contributes to this.

Bison meat contains a lot of important minerals as well; including iron, zinc, and selenium. One 5 oz section contains 15% of the daily iron requirement, 40% of the daily selenium requirement, and 35% of the daily zinc requirement.

In 1984, the Ute Indian Tribe reintroduced buffalo into the Hill Creek Extension of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation, starting with a small herd of fourteen buffalo housed as a tourist attraction at the Tribe's Bottle Hollow Resort. The Ute Indian Tribe's Bison herd has thrived and developed since the reintroduction of the Woodlands and Plains.
