Buying Tips

Fresh, quality buffalo is deep red in color, with no marbling of fat. Check the “Sell By” date on the package. This date indicates the last date the buffalo should be offered for sale. Meat and poultry should be prepared as soon as possible after the date of purchase, and used beyond the Sell By date only occasionally, if at all.


Like beef, buffalo is cut into steaks, roasts, brisket, stew meat, and ground buffalo; it’s also made into hot dogs, jerky, and salami. Beefalo, animals produced by breeding buffalo and cattle, produce meat that tastes and cooks much like beef.
