Our experienced staff is highly trained and dedicated to maximum success. All our team members are BQA (Beef Quality Assurance) certified and cross trained in animal movement and care. We train and educate our feeding crew, animal health crew and maintenance crew to be able to perform and understand all daily tasks in the feedyard. This is key to our success in managing daily details to provide the highest potential performance for your cattle.
Our Veterinarian and Nutritionist
We believe the key to success is to have the best available nutritionist and veterinarian work together with all our crew to provide seamless care of our cattle. Our consulting veterinarian works hand-in-hand with our animal health crew to train and educate in care and movement of cattle, while educating them about how to work with our feeding crews for animal health. Our consulting nutritionist works closely with our feeding crews to provide knowledge and understanding of processing and mixing optimal rations through use of modern computerized mill and bunk reader systems. Ingredients and rations are sampled to ensure consistency. Equal time is spent building knowledge and understanding how feeding relates to animal health and overall performance of cattle.

Detailed projections are completed for all pens of cattle and provided to our risk management partner to provide concise marketing and risk management strategies to protect your investment. Detailed and accurate hedging records and statements are provided for all pens of cattle.
