Bartlett Cattle is one of the nation’s largest cattle feeders with 100,000 head one-time capacity. We feed exclusively for our own account at our feedlots in Texas and Kansas. Over our 30+ years of experience in the industry, we have developed a proprietary approach to buying cattle and managing the risks of all segments of the production process that makes us uniquely successful among our competitors.
Bartlett Cattle’s programs for feeder cattle procurement, feed ingredient procurement and fed cattle marketing are designed to minimize the risks in these traditionally volatile markets. We hedge every aspect of our feeding operations, and we are constantly innovating to maximize production efficiency. Our state-of-the-art feed mills and innovative bunk and pen management are engineered to maximize weight gain and beef quality. Our finished cattle are tailored to meet packer needs.
Bartlett maintains a competitive edge in procuring feeder cattle by offering suppliers:
• pricing options that utilize both current and forward market pricing
• the ability to contract cattle
• the benefit of marketing directly to the feed yard
• prompt payment by wire transfer.
