From Buffalo for the Broken Heart:

(on the matter of the feedlot approach to both cattle and buffalo)

“…most of them followed the cattle-industry model: feed the buffalo grain in what amounts to a feedlot and deal with the diseases associated with nonnatural feeding by use of vaccinations and antibiotics.  It’s a little like locking children in a room with ice cream and potato chips and treating the health problems that result with expensive medicine.”
