History & Mission
In 1995 the American Bison Association (formed in 1975) and the National Buffalo Association (chartered in 1966) merged to become the National Bison Association.
The NBA has over 1,000 members in all 50 states and 10 foreign countries.
The NBA is a non-profit association of producers, processors, marketers and bison enthusiasts.
The mission of the National Bison Association is to bring together stakeholders to celebrate the heritage of American bison/buffalo, to educate, and to create a sustainable future for our industry.
National Bison Association members abide by the NBA Code of Ethics, which ensure the humane and sustainable raising of the American bison. To view our Code of Ethics, please click here.
