Behind the Scenes Shipping Cattle in the Flint Hills
My family has been custom grazing cattle for four generations in Greenwood County. We took in more than 5,000 head of steers and heifers from several different customers this year. Overall gains were better than expected ranging from 2.1 to 2.85 lb. per day across the native pastures we grazed this year. The grazing season ran from 90-110 days depending on the cattle.
