Individual management improves quality

By Jennifer Bremer

A feedlot where every animal is treated equally and individually to reach its highest quality potential is what Tom Fanning wants at Buffalo Feeders.

Buffalo Feeders, LLC, a 30,000-head custom feed yard, is located just south of the Kansas line in northwest Oklahoma.

"One of the unique things we offer at Buffalo Feeders is individual animal identification and management," said Fanning, who is a partner and general manager of the feedlot. "This can mean as many as 80,000 cattle are individually cared for each year."
