Our 6500 head feedlot facility was first constructed in 1964. Before this time, we raised cattle like everyone else beginning when we first homesteaded here in 1854. An Agricultural Engineer specifically chose our feedlot site for its southern exposure and natural slope which both contribute to an ideal feedlot layout. All pens have skirted fence-line feedbunks and mounds while only half have windbreaks and shades due to the industry wide disagreement over such feedlot structures. Pen capacity ranges from 40 to 240 head, giving the customer a flexible range of possibilities. To maintain a quality feedlot surface year-round at our E.P.A. approved feedlot, we own a broad range of machinery for this specific purpose. At any one time, you may find us operating our two wheel-loaders, box scraper, earth mover, or our bulldozer to make sure that the pens are kept in top shape. As University tests have shown, with the right structures and machinery to compensate for weather variation differences, feedlot location in the United States has little effect on cattle performance.
