If Manitoba has a heritage animal, the bison is it. In 1800, sixty million bison freely roamed the Central Plains. By 1865, 15 million remained, just 7 million in 1872. In 1900, one thousand bison were left in the world. Brought from the edge of extinction by the efforts of an unlikely combination of visionary people, bison still roam the land, numbering 19,000 in Manitoba, most of them on farms. Two small display herds, one near Lake Audy in Riding Mountain National Park and one at Fort Whyte Centre in Winnipeg, total 50 animals. The life of a bison today isn’t much different than it was thousands of years ago. Farmed but not domesticated describes the current bison population. They are back at home on their native range, preferring to be left alone in large roaming areas. They feed on similar grasses as their ancestors and grow to full maturity in about two years. In Manitoba, 120 farms produce bison, seven of them on First Nations.
