January 2016 Feedlot Forum
Once again, Accu-Steel, Inc., Templeton, IA, will sponsor the Feedlot Forum on January 19 in Sioux Center, Iowa. A long-time sponsor of the Feedlot Forum, Accu-Steel will feature their new 38′ wide cattle building designed to benefit pit barn and cow/calf operations. Other buildings highlighted will be the standard size cattle buildings, equipment storage, grain and commodity storage buildings.
“The 2016 forum features a few of the latest pressures feedlot producers are facing,” Beth Doran, beef program specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, said in an Iowa Beef Center news release. “Defending agriculture, sustainability, competitiveness, drug usage and profitability are real issues challenging today’s beef producers.”
The forum will take place 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. at the Terrace View Event Center in Sioux Center. In addition to the educational sessions, the program will feature more than 20 trade show exhibitors.
Quality products and great customer service can take a company far — add market-specific expertise to the mix, and you’ll see that company to go even farther. That’s exactly what Accu-Steel proved with the construction of a unique cattle building in northwest Kansas.
Kansas is a leading U.S. beef-producing state, and 2012 is the first year the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) approved a fully-permitted, fabric-covered building installation for use in cattle production. It’s a first for both Accu-Steel and the fabric-covered building industry as a whole.
Central Confinement Service, Ltd., is getting ready to celebrate its 30th anniversary, and with that has expanded its construction offerings to include Accu-Steel fabric-covered buildings. Located in Columbus, Neb., Central Confinement Service focuses on the swine, dairy, and beef industry. It was not until their customers started expressing interest in fabric-covered buildings that the company itself began to look into this state-of-the-art option for confining cattle.
In January of 2012, Accu-Steel became the number one choice for Central Confinement Service. “We needed the best designed fabric-covered cattle building on the market that had longevity for the customer,” said Tony Romshek, technical sales representative for Central Confinement Service.
