With or without their calves, bison are social in general: They travel as a whole group, grazing from location to location.

From Chicago Tribune, May 8, 2018: This one-minute video of the Fermilab bison shows them grazing and relaxing in the pasture.

From WBBM Newsradio, May 2, 2018: Roads and Grounds’s Dave Shemanske appears in this 44-second segment on the Fermilab bison herd.

On Wednesday, April 18, baby bison season officially began at Fermilab. The first calf of the year was born in the early morning hours, with a second appearing before noon. Neighbors are welcome to visit with the newborns.

Flashback to May 1: Inspiration comes over the herd of Fermilab bison — perhaps they were thinking of ways to celebrate the lab's 50th anniversary?
