American bison heads for Welsh farm
A BUSINESSMAN hopes to start selling American bison meat after importing a herd for his north Wales farm.
The animals, which were once close to extinction in the USA, are settling down in their new home at Rhug Organic Farm near Corwen, Denbighshire. Farm owner Lord Robert Newborough says the meat is as tasty as venison and lower in fat and cholesterol than fish or chicken - although twice the price. He plans to breed enough bison to start selling the meat within a few years. Lord Newborough bought the five cows and a bull - believed to be the first in Wales - from a herd of 250 animals in Dublin.
