When Earl C. Brookover pioneered contained cattle feeding in Western Kansas a half-century ago the internet not only wasn't around . . . it wasn't even imagined. But the entrepreneurial spirit that created it certainly was, and Brookover's innovative spark has produced the industry's most complete Interactive website:

From the opening page with Barchart market quotes to the exclusive Feedyard Forum, where those with an interest can pose questions and receive answers, is filled with information useful to feeders, producers and investors.

USDA Ag Market News provides a complete list of nationwide livestock auctions and their quantities for sale. There's a page exclusively for Shelf Cattle. Log on free and browse the Classified Pages. You'll find eight categories of products and services, including the Job Board. Click on the Resource Room and you'll find a wealth of information: glossary of cattlefeeding terms from “angular” to “zebu,” a complete history of cattlefeeding plus a listing of cattle diseases. Go to the Library for current articles on issues, developments and discoveries affecting cattle feeders and investors.

Other pages include: Feed Yard Directory, bimonthly E-newsletter, Trivia Quiz, Greeting Card and Feedlot Forum. One page deserves special attention: Cattlefeeding 101. It's a primer for those who are considering cattlefeeding as a business venture or investment opportunity.

Interactivity is a key feature of Including links to more than 600 other sites. Once a person signs on he/she may add their feedlot to the Directory and/or the Shelf Cattle page; put an ad in the Classified sector; participate in conversation on the Feedlot Forum; answer the Trivia Quiz . . . you can even submit your own questions; and finally, you can design an e-Greeting card for any occasion … you can actually choose the background music.
