Buffalo rancher Tim Steffenhagen cuts open large bales of hay as his herd grazes on an emergency supply of food that was dropped March 18, 2001, at the B&B Bison Ranch in Ellicottville, New York South of Buffalo. The long winter has created feed problems following a bad growing season last year for the Plains Bison being raised for their meat. Western New York was hit by a late winter blast dumping nearly a foot of new snow this weekend.
