Might be: Buffalo meat is much less likely 2 come from an animal that has been raised on grain feed laced with antibiotics and hormones, both of which r routinely used in U.S. Commercial meat industry because producers get more meat per pound of feed when they add these substances. If u r of the opinion that ingesting gratuitous antibiotics and hormones may be unhealthy..... Then buffalo is the way 2 go!
