I can say this, I don't know if I "like" Turner, but I'm sure I do respect him. He is right about bison being better than cattle, at least as far as grazing. Bison move naturally and don't overgraze. Some ranchers in MT are studying this and actively moving their cattle and protecting them with electronic fences instead of putting up permanent fences and letting cattle run wherever they please, which usually results in overgrazing.
