Kirkland Feedyard began In the early 1980’s when Perry Kirkland purchased some land to expand his current farm. The Feedyard was an added bonus that Perry never intended to use. However, a close friend asked him to help feed out some cattle and the empty pens were soon filled and Kirkland Feedyard was born. For many years Perry and his son Robby fed cattle by hand using 5 gallon buckets. Over time, the feedyard evolved and today, Kirkland Feedyard is a refined cattle feeding operation serving a variety of customers. Surrounded by windmills and cropland, the 20,000 head feedyard is a family business that is proud to serve the cattle industry.

We also know that eating protein and maintaining an active lifestyle is healthy for your whole body, but especially for your heart. Stay with us. Figueres' mention of deforestation highlights an exceptional point about U.S. cattle production. We don’t cut down trees to make room for food production in the United States. In fact, the innovative and efficient techniques U.S. farmers and ranchers use to produce food not only affords our country food independence and security but is has also increased our forestland by 40 million acres since the first world war. It is important that we help consumers understand the facts about real beef production in the United States. If we leave that void unfilled, certainly others will step in to fill it for us.
