It’s been said that the best cattlemen are the ones that aren’t afraid to implement changes and try new things. Innovative cattlemen typically weather economic storms better than most as they handle the challenges in stride, making improvements along the way to increase the bottom line. Bauer Feedyards is one of those operations that exemplify this idea. Located in Mina, SD, Randy Bauer of Bauer Feedyards just might have the solution to helping other cattlemen out, as well.

In the light of high input costs, Bauer has worked diligently to implement a grazing and feeding system to improve weaning weights and increase costs of production in his cowherd. Bauer Feedyards consists of an 800 head cow/calf operation, along with a 5,000 head feedyard. Randy works alongside his wife, Cheryl, and two sons, Bryan and Shane, at the operation. Located within eight miles of two ethanol plants, the Bauers live in an ideal location for feeding cattle.
