Caring for Animals


Animal care is a top priority at Poky Feeders. Our staff which includes our cattle manager oversee a team of cowboys and a processing crew that take pride in maintaining the health of the cattle. Through continued training and education our crew removes any stressed animals to one of the hospitals for individual treatment.

To obtain an objective viewpoint a consulting veterinarian visits the yard every other week to consult and further evaluate the feed yard’s health. We consistently have one of the lowest death losses in the industry.

Poky is committed to the health and welfare of our animals. Our employees actively participate in the Beef Quality Assurance Program.

Beef Quality Assurance is a national program that provides guidelines for beef cattle production. The program raises consumer confidence through offering proper management techniques and a commitment to quality within every segment of the beef industry.

Poky believes BQA is valuable because it:
• Demonstrates commitment to food safety and quality
• Safeguards the public image of the industry
• Upholds consumer confidence in valuable beef products
• Protects the beef industry from additional and burdensome
government regulation
• Improves the sale value of marketed beef cattle
• Enhances herd profitability through better management
