The 16th annual North Dakota Stockmen’s Association Feedlot Tour will bring cattle producers to feedlots near Spiritwood and Marion. NDSA President Warren Zenker says the tour provides valuable information for those interested in the business. “You get to see what other producers have done in building a feedlot. A lot of times, there are aspects they would’ve done differently.” Zenker adds the tour also allows participants to connect with fellow cattle producers. “In a dry year, producers may be looking to some of these yards to background calves. Last year, I had a couple local guys that were short of feed and looking for a place to background calves.” The tour takes place Tuesday, June 19.
