Last Saturday found us south of I-80 on a hot and very windy day. I wanted to see Mom and Dad’s steers on feed. These steers were born the spring of 2011. They will be harvested towards the end of June and become wholesome nutritious beef!
We visited with the Feedlot Owner/ Manager and the Assistant Manager took time to look at the cattle with us.
These red steers were in the pen across the lane from Mom and Dad’s.
After looking at Mom and Dad’s cattle, Mom and I went to Will Feed, Inc. to meet Anne, the Feedyard Foodie. Anne took us for a tour of the feedlot and shared how she works towards her goals of providing safe, high quality, delicious Nebraska raised beef, while protecting the environment and showing compassion for her animals. We also visited about family and agriculture advocacy.
A personal Thank You to Anne for taking the time to meet with Mom and I. It is neat to meet and shake hands with a talented, highly respected cattlewoman.
