Smarter decisions. More beef. Bigger profits.

Operated by Warren and Carol Weibert since 1977, Decatur County Feed Yard in northwest Kansas is a family business built on three profit-driven, time-proven principles:

  1. Ranchers retaining ownership of cattle through the feed yard.
  2. Managing and marketing cattle as individuals.
  3. Providing comprehensive individual animal performance data to ranchers.

Together, these steps create a precise benchmarking system that shows you, the rancher, the strengths and weaknesses of your herd. This information enables you to make objective culling and bull-purchasing decisions to dramatically and quickly improve your herd’s profitability.
