Consumers a.k.a. Customers a.k.a. YOU!

If you eat, then you are a customer of mine.  And you know what they say… “The Customer is Always Right!”

My own family eats the beef we raise and the grain we sell.  We are consumers too.  I am always keeping my ear to the ground when it comes to consumer issues, especially safety, health, and welfare concerns.  It is my goal to address some of these specific issues in future blog postings.

We have a lot of options when it comes to who we sell our livestock and grain to, but primarily:

Our beef cattle go to Tyson. http://www.tyson.com/Consumer/Products/Beef/Default.aspx

Our hogs go to Hormel. (and yes, I know this is a picture of chicken….but I had a heck of a time being able to get a Hormel image!!)

Our corn goes to ADM and local ethanol plants.

And our beans are raised specifically for Cargill’s Vistive low-lin soybean oil.

We also often sell some of our feedlot cattle to local families who are looking to buy beef.  When we do this, we deliver the cattle to the local meat lockers for them.  We love to be able to sell our beef directly to local people, and are always looking for new customers!

Please feel free to ask me anything about our farm.  If there is something you’d like to see me address, I’ll do my best to put some info out there, and tell you how we handle it in our operation.  I won’t be satisfied until you are, I care deeply about the people who consume the product I produce, my livelihood depends on it!   In fact, please feel free to visit us!  Although I am purposely leaving details out of this public blog, I am completely open to showing my farm to anyone with an honest interest in learning about what we do!!  Just contact me.
