The American bison, also commonly known as the American buffalo, appear slow because of their lethargic movements but can easily outrun humans and have been observed running as fast as 35-40mph.

Live and processed buffalo prices are extremely high right now in Wyoming and the U.S. Wyoming and Colorado are at the center of the bison business and are extremely well situated to grow with the industry.
