Robert this is knowen as a hybrid bred beefalo beefalo is is a 3/8 buffalo 5/8 bovine of any breed. To go higher is a hybrid animal or to go below 17.5% is a hybrid bovine this is an actual breed of cattle. there really good animals to have arround. They offer alot to the breeder.I don't know if I would use that cross but it would be interesting. For more info on the breed go to American Beefalo World Registery,or Beefalo and it will thke you to the two Registeries. Cindy
This is a bison hybrid-a true beefalo is 3/8 bison and 5/8 bovine (any breed of cattle). I don't know if these are really considered rare but they aren't very common. I bet it's a unique looking animal-I'm sure it will be a tough one, utilizing the hardiness of both the Longhorn and the Bison.
