I was excited to see a baby moose once...until I realized I couldn't see Mama. She walked up behind the baby and we edged around the car and watched them from there.

@ DC Gator: Ensalada Caprese, Canapés, Pizza Toppings

@ DC Gator,

Firstly, no problem ... I have learnt a bit too ... One learns something new daily ...

Rec´d quite a bit of feedback on topic too and leads to follow ...

I enjoy ensalada caprese immensely ... and then, yes the canapés and Topping my Pizzas.

My advice is to tackle emailing these suggestions, one per day or one per couple of days ... and speak to whom ever, you can --- Italian restaurateurs and chefs --- they know who distributes water buff milk ... and Italian delis too ...

Please keep me posted. If by chance, I can find out more, I shall post the details to you.

Kindest,

Margi

If you're really ambitious, you could contact Billie Swamp Safari in south Florida. They might be interested in allowing you to wrangle some of their free roaming water buffalo. You might be in it for the milk, but they would simply be interested as an attraction for the tourists!

That would be akin to wild cow milking, just with more blood, since these aren't really very wild cows.



It kind of reiterates the reason the rabbit stew recipe begins, "First, catch a rabbit."

Rather testy? The Am. bison is downright difficult to handle (my cousin had a buffalo ranch...if one had difficulty calving, it was really, really difficult to assist). I've milked sheep, goats, and cows, but I don't think I'd want to go near an Am. bison and pull on her udder...

There are a couple things you need to know. Buffalo of any kind are not in any way related or even the same species (NOT EVEN COUSINS !!!!!) To bison ! Bison are their own species and only native to North America. For the man looking for Buffalo milk in the U.S. look up or Google WATER BUFFALO MILK. There are a number of ranches in the U.S. that have water buffalo milk, most of them are in the eastern half of the U.S. By The Way, Water Buffalo are a major source of milk in Asia, Africa, and Europe. (Bison in the U.S. NO!!!!)

Water buffalo milk? Yuck!

As far as buffalo vs. bison, I know that. Perhaps my post was confusing, I sometimes inadequately proof read my posts. In any case bison are often inappropriately called buffalo in America. That's the way it is and neither you nor I can change it.

Funny thing, I had a buffa.... um..... bison burger for dinner last night! :-)

By the way you CAN get Buffalo milk in America! Just drive to Buffalo N.Y. and buy it in any supermarket.

Mozz works just fine with regular cow's milk...have made several batches now and am happy with it. We don't find many water buffalo this side of the Rockies anyway. Plenty of Bison though, but I don't think they would appreciate being milked.

Interesting article.

Maybe you can roller skate in a buffalo herd after all, who knows?
