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 are committed to maintaining a clean, top-of-the-line, and trustworthy operation. Because of the amount and accuracy of data documented in our electronic cattle management system, we are able to prove that commitment, meeting stringent food safety and quality assurance standards. Meeting these standards also helps us qualify for USDA age and source verification programs, as well as other USDA-monitored programs.
“I have noticed after using Decatur over a three-year period that my closeout weights and quality have improved by 15 percent each year — which turns into dollars returned."
