Large Group of Producers Gathered for the 2017 Nebraska Cattlemen Farmer Stockman Tour 


LINCOLN, NE (June 30, 2017) - The Nebraska Cattlemen Farmer Stockman Council held their annual tour this past week in the Columbus and Madison area. The morning started with a tour of the Cargill facility in Schuyler. After the tour of both production floors the group enjoyed visiting with Cargill management on current issues. 


The group next toured the Sidump'r and Feeding Systems facility in Columbus where they saw production lines of Sidump'r Trailer, Batch Box and Cattle Shades. The group also toured the Kent Feeds plant where mainly commercial beef feed is produced.

The tour wrapped up at Reigle Cattle Co just out side of Madison. The third generation feedyard recently expanded its operations. John, Jeanne, Andy and Alison were able to share the history and current operation.  


John Lange, chairman of the Farmer Stockman council stated "It was great to see such a large group of close to sixty producers enjoying the tour and learning more about the beef industry in northeast Nebraska. We are planning a tour for the Thayer Co area next year."
