Cattle in Dickens, NE

Cattle Health & Well-being. The health and comfort of our cattle is our first priority. Unlike other livestock, cattle do not spend their lives in tightly-confined quarters. Indeed, all of our cattle come from farms and ranches where the cattle graze on open pasture for the majority of their lives. That openness is preserved in our feedlots, where cattle have ample room to move about in their pens. Further, we strive to keep a cow with the same cattle it grew up with after reaching the feedlot. By doing so, our cattle experience a change in their surroundings only, which helps relieve the stress of a new environment.
