"U can be done, and it has been done," said Mueller about the buffalo-Longhorn crossbreeding plan. Previously, the farmer has directed the mixed mating of Shorthorn, Longhorn, Charolais, Scotch Highlanders, and- has even imported Murray Grey semen from Australia to be used in breeding his cows. All of these efforts have been productive. Now. comes the hang-up on the buffalo. "She (the buffalo-heifer) doesn't ilo much except grunt- rf lot — sounds just like a hog," Mueller confided. "I keep watching — and hoping _ but nature hasn't yet taken its course." What if the Charolais or Shorthorn bulls beat the Longhorn to the chance, if the heifer becomes amorous? ".The buffalo is more likely to choose a mate more her size," Mueller said. "The Charolais and Shorthorn bulls are too big." What if the buffalo retains her lack of interest in male companions? "She'll be slaughtered and I'll be eating buffalo steaks," answered Mueller quickly. "But I hope that doesn't happen." Somewhat irksome to Mueller is the popularity of the buffalo. For years, his Texas Longhorn herd, his Scotch Highland i s h a g g y-haired beasts with magnificent horns) cattle, his string of Appaloosa horses, and more recently wild turkeys have attracted visitors to his North River Valley farm. But .now, visitors come by his farm almost daily to see the buffalo. "It's hard for me to imagine the interest one buffalo causes," confided Mueller. "Ac tuaUy it's not as pretty as my Longhorn cattle."
