A mule is a hybred and will not reproduce.
A beefalo is a hybred and will produce.
Always heard a hybred will not reproduce or go back to original state as in a crop.
So why does the beefalo reproduce or would it after a time go back to a cow or buffalo?

The funny thing about guys switching to buffalo in our neck of the woods is the inputs. The wood buffalo indigenous to our area wintered in in big peat moss meadows along willow swamps and thrived on the same. When you brush and break up those meadows you pull skulls up from long ago.There are people up here that switched from cows to buffs and are spending more money on feed than when they ran cattle. Were trying to turn our cows into buffalo and our buffalo into cows lol.
