Get to know the State of Colorado, specifically through its bison herds. For example, the bison herd on the Rawhide Energy Station property near Wellington, CO.
The herd, which totals sixty-three and are purebred animals, has called the property home since 1983. Several of the bison are direct descendants of the original herd, which was established by the first General Manager of the Rawhide Energy to demonstrate the ability of nature to coexist with humans.
The land the bison graze is prairie, and encompasses 3,800 acres. Not far away is the home of Colorado’s first genetically pure bison herd, which lives on the Soapstone Prairie Natural Area.
