Work in progress... I think I re-drew the head about 4 times. It was going good till I put in a plain blue sky and killed it. So I'm taking inspiration from last night's super sunset. Can't wait to put some highlights in the foliage. #bison #workinprogress #sonjacaywoodstudio

Proud to be part of the 2017 Bison delegation for the Washington DC roundup. 20 meetings with key Senators, Representatives, staff members and USDA officials on Capital Hill discussing research priorities for bison herd health, incentives to bring new producers into bison production, export issues impacting bison, and key recommendations for thr upcoming Farm Bill. #makeadifference #research #herdhealth #washingtondc #farmlife #farmbill #bison1million #nationalmammal #nationalbisonassociation #ITBC #collaboration

#BuffaloFactFriday - Buffalo are very efficient grazers. They utilize more nutrients in the forages they consume than cattle do, as well as eat a wider variety of plant material. Buffalo do not graze grasses down to the roots like other livestock, but will leave a little bit of plant material so the grass is able to regrow. When properly managed, buffalo are gental on the land they graze and can be utilized to restore degraded grass lands. #Buffalo #Bison #NationalMammal

We'll forever be mesmerized by the beauty, grace, and raw power the American bison possesses. In addition to helping purchase our own massive herd to run freely as they once did on America's Great Plains, we also are fighting for better treatment and dietary standards across the bison market. And based on what we saw at this year's National Bison Conference--there's more buzz about grass-feeding and pasture-raising bison than we've ever seen--some serious changes are taking place. It won't happen overnight, but things are getting better and better for our National Mammal. We couldn't be more excited. #bison #progress 📸 @chrisaustinfoto

Mama bison is making sure I will not be mean to her calf who is hiding behind his/her imposing mother. I decided it’s best to be very kind to baby bison given her mountain sized mama. #bison #buffalo #americanbison #nationalmammal #americanbuffalo #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildlifeplanet #Wyoming #lamarvalley #cow #calf #family #earthpix #natgeo #natgeowild #snow #winter #cold

This time next week, we'll be in the middle of our bison processing! Calves, yearlings, and two-year olds will be chipped and vaccinated, and a select few sent to Nature Conservancy, tribal, and state conservation herds across the country. Soon you will be able to visit Wind Cave bison in Washington, Arizona, Kansas, and Indiana! #bison #natureconservancy #nationalmammal #prairie #preservation #restoration #windcavenp #windcavenps #windcavenationalpark

#BuffaloFactFriday - In the late 1800's the buffalo population in North America was down to under 1,000 head. Private ranchers and conservation groups stepped in to save the species. Thanks to those efforts and continued efforts from buffalo ranchers, there are about 600,000 head of buffalo living in North America today.

The @nbisona has set a goal of increasing the buffalo population to 1 million by 2027, a lofty but obtainable endeavor. #EatMoreBuffalo #Bison #Buffalo #NationalMammal #EatMoreBison
