Interest in raising bison as alternative livestock has increased dramatically in recent years. Bison meat has nutritional advantages for the health-conscious consumer. Research (1) has established that bison meat contains 2530% more protein than beef because it has less fat marbling. Bison is lower in calories, fat, and cholesterol than beef, pork, or skinless chicken (2). Bison meat is usually prepared like beef, but bison has a quicker cooking time and can easily be overcooked.
