U.S. #1176 honors the significant roles grassland and livestock play in American agriculture. The stamp shows the development from pioneer days to more modern scientific techniques. At the left is a reproduction of famed Western artist Charles M. Russell’s “The Trail Boss,” while the right side pictures a 1960s range scene.
 
American Buffalo
Vast herds of buffalo, or bison, once roamed over North America. In 1850, it is estimated there were 20 million buffalo in the United States. However, by 1889, only 551 could be found in the nation. Since that time, great efforts have been made to preserve this impressive species. Today, more than 65,000 buffalo inhabit U.S. and Canadian reserves.
 
The National Bison Range is part of the National Wildlife Refuge System. Up to 450 buffalo live on the range’s 18,500 acres. National Bison Range is also home to elk, deer, pronghorn, black bear, coyote, ground squirrels, and many species of birds, including eagles. Established in 1908, it is one of the oldest wildlife refuges in America.
