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:
- Ranchers retaining ownership of cattle through the feed yard.
- Managing and marketing cattle as individuals.
- 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.
“We have increased our pounds per head produced over the years feeding with Decatur. With the grid pricing at Cargill, QSA program (USDA Quality Systems Assessment Program), and electronic cattle management program, we have seen our profits increase substantially over the years.”
