In my job I spend a lot of time talking about beef cattle production and management. My training is actually in ruminant nutrition but I have always geared it and my career mostly towards beef cattle. However, there are several species of mammal that qualify as being a ruminant. One of the ones that has long since fascinated me is the elk. Here is a short video clip (~90 seconds) of a bull elk grazing in a very lazy fashion. I filmed this in Rocky Mountain National Park last Friday afternoon. I hope you enjoy the video.
