Cute, warm and fuzzy — and a lot of bull!

Fermilab’s Roads and Grounds Department completed the yearly thorough inspection and inoculation of our pure American Plains bison herd on Tuesday, Oct. 10. Over the next few weeks, 10 of the new calves born this year will be sold to the highest bidders, interested in increasing their herd size, for diversity and genetics or potential future herd bulls.
