Need an Indoor Cattle Feeding/Finishing Solution?

Beef | Posts

“I’m a considering moving from an open feedlot to feeding cattle under roof. Where do I start?”

If you are a beef producer and investigating the pros and cons of an open lot and indoor cattle feeding/finishing you’ll want to talk to Sam Odom, Divisional Manager for Summit Livestock Facilities. 

Sam travels around the Midwest speaking to beef producers of various sizes. He offers loads of valuable information to help producers make tough growth decisions for their individual operations.

Sam’s presentations focus on Monoslope housing facilities … specifically:

  • Advantages of Monoslope Facilities
  • Three Monoslope Housing Options
  • A Systems approach to Design and Construction
  • Approximate Total Project Investment

He also covers a few of the many economic forces causing the shift of feeding cattle (from the Southwest to the Midwest) such as:

  • The increasing worldwide demand for beef
  • The business opportunity associated with feeding DDGs
  • Ongoing poor growing conditions in the Southwest

In addition the risks of today’s cattle market, consumer perception of our industry and higher feed prices are all among the many reasons why producers are being be very cautious about the design of the cattle housing structures they choose . . . and why the Monoslope design makes sense.
