What is a Beefalo, what is a Bison Hybrid? A Beefalo is a cross between a Bison (American Buffalo) and any breed of domestic cattle. There are several classifications of Beefalo and all are listed by their Bison content or percentage. So for example, if someone says that they have a Purebred Beefalo, they are saying that the animal has between 34.0 - 37.4% Bison in it.
The following is a short list of percentages considered to be Beefalo:
37.5% (3/8) - Fullblood Beefalo
34.0 - 37.4% - Purebred Beefalo
17.0 - 33.99% - Percentage Beefalo
17.0 - 18.75% - Half Beefalo (also sometimes called Percentage Beefalo)
less than 17.0% - domestic cattle (cannot be called Beefalo)
A Bison Hybrid is also a cross between a Bison (American Buffalo) and any breed of domestic cattle. In order for an animal to be classified as a Bison Hybrid, it must have more than 37.5% (3/8ths) Bison content.
