Donald Beard is the superintendent of Caprock State Park, home to the Texas state bison herd. He is also the owner and operator of Caprock Bison Company, a commercial bison firm on private lands. Here, he recalls the key role that 19th century ranchers played in saving the remains of the original wild buffalo herds, and the continued part that modern-day production herds on private property play in protecting the species.
