Minimum price for a buffalo: $300. They are hardier than beef cattle and require roughly the same range. The main problem in raising them for meat is the need for strong fences.
"An electric fence is no good," Nicol said. "They'll charge an electric fence and get a good jolt as they go through, but in spite of that they'll break through all right."
For a start, the branch plans to sell one herd of 22 cows and three bulls.
WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS
Some football coaches are marvels at persuading their players that they have a chance against a superior team. One of them is Dick Jones of Tamaqua High School in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania.
The week before Tamaqua was to play unbeaten Pottsville, Jones tacked this sign to a dressing-room wall: "If you hit hard enough, even a tree will splinter."
Then, to prove his point, he herded his players into a nearby forest, where they spent an entire session blocking trees. Smaller trees broke, bent and splintered, and a few nights later little Tamaqua tied mighty Pottsville 6-6.
