Is cattle feeding a ‘noble’ profession?
For the past 36 years, Bob Noble, whose cattle feeding operation is located west of Riceville, has seen many changes in cattle feeding among many other areas of the beef industry. Bob, his wife Jayne and their three children, lived on the farm where Bob was raised. Nobles have fed cattle on the farmstead for the past 36 years. “My dad, Harlan, was a general farmer with different types of livestock including milk cows. The last 20 years Dad fed cattle,” Bob said.
