Report says S.D. ranks first in bison production

Published 06/24/2010, The Daily Republic

South Dakota still ranks tops in buffalo production, according to the latest available statistics from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Those recently released numbers, for 2009, show that South Dakota has 38,500 buffalo — more than double No. 2 ranked Nebraska, which has about 18,000 head, and well ahead of No. 3 North Dakota, which has about 16,000 head.
The buffalo numbers contrast starkly with those for cattle. South Dakota ranks eighth in cattle production with 3.8 million, while No. 1 is Texas, with 247.5 million head.
