Are buffalo raised for their fur coats?



  1. 0 Votes

    Buffalo fur, or bison fur was extremely sought-after in the 1800s, when 200,000 bison were killed every year to send coats back to Europe. Bison fur isn’t as popular today, and most of the bison farms I came across in the United States primarily raise them for meat. It seems like the meat is sold first, and the leftover fur is then made into clothing, almost like an afterthought. It is good to know that bison owners are getting the most out of a single animal, since just raising buffalo for the fur hides is wasteful if nothing else.
