Sustain Our Herd

This weekend at the Park, we'll be thinking of our main man, the lone male bull of the buffalo herd. We're offering a new way that you can help feed our favorite bull-headed man while supporting yours this Sunday with our Father's Day Buffalo Adoptions and Feed the Herd program.  Do you have a father who provides for you each year?

Nice Calves

One of Shelby Farms Park’s unique features is our iconic herd of American Bison (we call them buffalo). And our family is growing! Four baby buffalo were born this summer, one in May, two in June, and one in July, bringing the total number of the Shelby Farms Park herd to 19.   If you go baby-spotting in the buffalo range (which we highly recommend!), you might count five calves, but don’t confuse the teenager with the newborns.
