We served up some great bison burgers, bison hot dogs, bison Pocket tacos, bison nachos, sweet tea, etc. Our bison jerky was a hit as always.

It was such a privilege to host our Calhoun County Extension Service 4-H Day Camp. Until I brought out my awards to show the kids, I had forgotten just how much I had learned in 4-H and how these things helped me in my adult life and career. The kids were awesome and the County Agents were a pleasure to have here at the ranch.

Some of the first park rangers in America weren’t rangers at all. Known as the Buffalo Soldiers, roughly 500 African American men were assigned by the U.S. Army to protect national parks in the west before the National Park Service was created. The wildlife you see today in parks like Yellowstone National Park is in part due to their efforts to fight against poaching. #BlackHistoryMonth

Hot Dog! Celebrate National Hot Dog Day (July 22)
by Farmers' Almanac Staff | Posted In: Featured

Hot Dog! Celebrate National Hot Dog Day (July 22)

Hot dogs, wieners, frankfurters, weenies, dogs, pups, red hots, sausages, brats. Whatever you call them, celebrate National Hot Dog Day on July 22nd in 2020!

Slathered with mustard, ketchup, barbecue sauce, or mayo, drenched in sauerkraut, chili, red onion, relish, cheese, celery salt, chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles, or jalapeno peppers, and boiled, broiled, steamed, fried, grilled or microwaved, these juicy gems are part of an enduring American love affair–whatever name you give them. With a side of coleslaw, baked beans, potato salad, or a favorite bag of chips, nothing else shouts “summertime” in quite the same way. In fact, what’s a state fair without corndogs–hot dogs coated and fried in a corn breading—first introduced in Texas in 1942.

'History on the Hoof': July Designated as National Bison Month 07-01-2019 by Steve Warren

In 2016, bison were named as America’s National Mammal.
In 2016, bison were named as America’s National Mammal.
The month of July has been designated as National Bison Month to honor America's official mammal.

Once enormous herds of bison thundered across the Great Plains of North America. Between the Rocky Mountains and along the Mississippi River's west bank, from Minnesota to Louisiana, this area of the country was one vast range inhabited by millions of buffaloes.

A conservative estimate on how many bison lived on the Plains during the early 1800s varies between 20 and 60 million.

Mountain men, pioneers, and soldiers later marvelled in their memoirs at the animals' immense size and their ability to move together with some herds covering many square miles at once.

The word "buffalo" comes from a term early French explorers used when describing the animal -- "les boeufs." According to The Rapid City Journal, a bull can weigh up to 2,000 pounds while a cow weighs less than half of the weight of a bull.

To the tribes of Native Americans living on the Plains, the buffalo were their way of life. The animal provided everything for their nomadic way of life, including food, clothing and shelter.

But with the coming of the railroads brought hide hunters, sport shooters, and the U.S. Army, which was set on eliminating the traveling commissary on which Native Americans subsisted in the late 1800s. By the 1880s, fewer than 1,000 bison remained in the wild.

According to the USDA Forest Service, the bison was named as America's National Mammal in 2016, underscoring the historical, economical and ecological significance of bison.

Today, approximately 500,000 bison are living in herds throughout the US and Canada.

Some of USDA sites maintaining bison herds have set up programs for adults and youth like the one at the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie near Willmington, Illinois to learn more about bison.

The National Bison Association website lists all of public 21 bison herds in existence. in addition, there are also several thousand maintained private herds as well.

Bison is still popular with American consumers today due to its protein-rich, low fat meat containing hardly any cholesterol.

Then we revisit an old friend named Darryl Patton up on Lookout Mountain who'll show you the cure for what ails you may be in your own backyard. You'll want to hear what The Southern Herbalist has to say. And to make it a clean sweep we'll go up to Florence and step inside George's Broom Closet because it is Absolutely Alabama. So join us bright and early Saturday morning at 5:30 on WSFA-TV Montgomery or Sunday morning at 4:30 on WBRC FOX6 News, Birmingham. Spend part of your weekend with us!
