Bison Bunch Up to Protect Calves

Bison Bunch Up to Protect Calves

Over millions of years, rangelands have evolved under grazing by nomadic herds that travel in mass, bunched up to protect both young and adults from predators. And, plants have evolved to need this. This observation is the basis for holistic range practices such as monitored, rotational grazing.

 

In this video, wolves are threatening bison calves and the herd is circling and bunching to defend itself.

 

Using holistic principles, cattle can mimic this behavior through planned rotational grazing.
