You’ve heard of cows, buffalo and bison, but have you ever seen a Beefalo? Probably not, but if you did, you wouldn’t want to start a fight with one.
This hybrid creature didn’t skip leg, chest, arm or back day.
The result of crossbreeding between a female bison and a bull, the beefalo was created by a farmer in the 1970s as a way to help the beef industry bounce back from breeding problems with cows.
In a way, it worked: not only does the beefalo provide farmers with an ample supply of meat, but the animal is also safe from cattle-related diseases and joint problems that cows face.
While the beefalo isn’t as popular for farmers compared to traditional cattle, there are still a handful of beefalo farms around today.
