Animal health technologies improve feedlot profitability

Feedlot operators regularly use new animal health technologies to keep their cattle healthy and comfortable, as well as improve performance and profitability.

Wisner, Neb., cattle feeder Tom Feller is no different. Feller has been feeding cattle for nearly 30 years and has seen several new technologies improve his business.

"When I first got into the business, (growth promoting) implants were just introduced," he said. "We didn't know if it was worth it and my dad was against it. I tried them and now we know it was worth the extra investment."
