Custom Cattle Feeding
If you are interested in cattle feeding please give us a call. Cattle feeding is our core business and we try to do the best job everyday seven days a week. To get the best performance and give you the best opportunity for profit it takes commitment every day. We do that at Poky.
Poky Feeders has administrative and marketing advantages that put you in a good position.
Our computer programs offer investors financial analysis and sales projections in a multitude of customized formats, letting you know how many pounds of feed your cattle consumed each day since they have been on feed. The program also estimates the weight of your cattle each day. Our reports have the capacity to factor in things from breed, place of origin, ration mix to entry condition. Poky Feeders invoices on a bi-monthly basis.
At your request we’ll keep you up-to-date with projections of finishing dates from the first day your cattle arrive at our feed yard. When that day comes, we’ll have buyers there to see your cattle. All of the major and regional packers are represented at Poky Feeders each week. Our close proximity to the packers brings buyers in when your cattle are at their peach and ready to be marketed, or you have the option to slaughter your cattle through U.S. Premium Beef.
Our consulting nutritionist visits the yard twice a month to sample rations and to make sure the rations are a their optimum quality. The nutritionists are recognized as one of the industry leaders and is constantly comparing ingredient costs to make our ration the best competitive ration possible. Modern equipment including GPS feed systems deliver consistent feed to the bunk in a timely manner.
The entire yard is thoroughly maintained to reduce stress on the cattle and to provide cost efficient care. The location of the feedyard lends itself to dryer pens year round.
