Old conversation[edit]

The high price of this meat, partly due to low supply, has done little to generate popularity.

This contradicts generally accepted economics principles. There are likely (And seemingly, based on the article) additional costs associated with cowffaloes or whatever contrived word you prefer. I'm not taking it out or rewording it partially because it would be original research, and partially because the article is too vague on one hand and brief on the other for me to adequately form a conclusion that I can comfortably pass on as fact. Oh, and I'm lazy, I guess that's a factor as well.200.42.217.61 (talk) 00:18, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

"Cattle and buffalo were first crossbred during the mid 1800s. Charles Goodnight, was one of the first to succeed and called his hybrid cattalo. After seeing thousands of cattle die in a Kansas blizzard in 1886, Charles Jesse "Buffalo" Jones also worked to cross buffalo and cattle with the hope that they would survive the harsh winters. [1] He called the result "cattalo" in 1888. [2]. Mossom Boyd of Bobcaygeon, Ontario first started the practice in Canada."

Is one of those "cattalo"s supposed to be "beefalo"? --132.162.240.108 00:06, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

I reworded the paragraph that read like a guy was trying to mate his grandfather to a bison. :) 70.150.135.120 15:06, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Where it says "Bos bison", should that be "Bison bison"? That's the species name used for buffalo elsewhere on Wikipedia, although there do seem to be other uses of "Bos bison" on the web. Adam Sampson 20:30, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Expand[edit]

How many beefalo are currently alive? Is it becoming common as a food source? Wasn't there something about the meat being preferred because it was lower in fat than beef (but sometimes a little dry)?

Margaret Wilson[edit]

Mrs. Margaret Wilson, 68, wife of T.M. Wilson who lives 11 miles southeast of Colville, died at her home there Nov. 16 [1931]. She was born in Washington, Iowa, April 12, 1863, and had been a resident of Stevens county for 14 years. Funeral services were held Wednesday morning from the McCord and Cory chapel with the Rev. Everett R. Hunt officiating. Mrs. Lester Cohrs sang. Pallbearers were E. B. Gregory, W.C. Morrow, George Seney, Al Miller, J.H. Root and C. J. Chopot. Interment was in Highland Cemetery. Mrs. Wilson is survived by her husband and one son, Leland, who operate the famous catalo ranch, where beef cattle have been successfully crossed with buffalo.[1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.5.166.39 (talk) 17:56, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

D.C. Basolo[edit]

Why no mention of D.C. "Bud" Basolo (ca. 1923 – December 7, 2012) in the the article? Basolo was a key figure in the development of the Beefalo breed. Having worked on cross-breeding in the 1960s and by the 1970s having succeeded in creating the Beefalo hybrid, he was notable in the business before the World Wide Web and Wikipedia ever existed.

Beefalo orthography[edit]

The name "Beefalo" is a trademark, i.e., a proper noun. As such, it should always be capitalized in the article. — QuicksilverT @ 17:54, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
