The Nebraska Red Angus Association held their annual tour and field day on Aug. 14. The tour began in Lexington, NE, with stops at Darr Feedlot near Cozad; Hueftle Cattle Co., Cozad, NE; and Cross Diamond Cattle Co., Bertrand, NE.

At Darr Feedlot, Craig Uden and John Schroeder talked about the benefits they see in feeding and marketing Red Angus cattle. Darr Feedlot is a state-of-the-art feedlot with very clean pens, excellent drainage and waste management. There were several pens of red-hided cattle on feed and both Uden and Schroeder have been very pleased with the way Red Angus-influenced cattle have performed for them. Also on display at the feedlot were some heifer calf pairs and a set of bred heifers from Hueftle Cattle Co., which the junior members on the tour utilized as a judging contest.

From Darr Feedlot, the tour went to Eustis Fairgrounds for lunch and then to a pasture tour of Hueftle Cattle Co. spring-calving pairs south of Eustis, NE. From the Hueftle pasture, the tour continued to Elwood, NE for a display of the Cross Diamond Cattle Co. sale bulls and bred heifers, then to Cross Diamond Cattle Co. headquarters, near Bertrand, NE, where they had a pen of summer pairs on display.

The tour concluded with a prime rib sandwich and presentation of door prizes before the bus returned to Lexington.
