There’s Gold in Them There Cattle
California, Dakota, Alaska. More than 100 years after America’s last great gold rushes, a Nebraska feedlot has hit the mother lode.
Terry Beller, manager of his family’s feeding business near Lindsay, Neb., has been a prospector of sorts for years. Especially after Beller Feedlot became Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB)-licensed in 2001, he has sought only the highest-quality Angus cattle to feed. The search continues. “We’re finding that there are those high-quality types out there,” Beller says. “I’m going to go after them and try to get them here.”
