Wayback Wednesday: These were taken during one of the photographer’s first visits to the lab, in October 1977. These Scottish Highland cattle had their own pasture to the east of what is now home to the bison.

On April 28, baby bison season officially began. The first calf of the year was born in the late morning, and mother and baby are doing well. Fermilab is expecting between 12 and 14 new calves this spring.
