Find, keep the best people
Producing top quality calves and beef takes top quality people, and families can’t always get all the work done on their own. Just about every full-time cattle operation needs hired labor once in a while, but feedlots especially rely on their employees.
Managers of feedlots from Texas to Canada discussed hiring and keeping the best people at this summer’s Feeding Quality Forum panels in Amarillo, Texas, and Kearney, Neb.
Cozad, Neb., feeders John Schroeder and Anne Burkholder, of Darr Feedlot and Will Feed Inc., respectively, talked about the “human spirit” as a motivating factor.
