Accu-Steel customer Pratt Feeders, a 38,000-head feedyard in southern Kansas, was recently featured in Angus Journal for earning the Certified Angus Beef (CAB) 2012 Feedlot Partner of the Year recognition in the over 15,000-head category. Manager of Pratt Feeders, Jerry Bohn, attributes the feedyard’s growing success to the operation’s dedication to inbound genetics and intensive individual animal management.
When extreme heat brought a dip in feed consumption and an uptick in death loss among the herd in 2012, Bohn took action. To help mitigate the heat, he placed Accu-Steel Cattle Covers in several pens and gathered data on cost-effectiveness and the benefit to cattle.

Accu-Steel fabric-covered buildings are mostly known for their presence in the Midwest for a variety of applications including cattle and agriculture operations, and for storage applications involving grain, commodities, salt, sand, equipment and more. Though these buildings are most frequently used within applications such as these, Accu-Steel is proud to announce a new structure erected for a truly unique and exciting purpose.
Built in late May next to the Monté Carlo Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nv., stands an 800-seat Accu-Steel Crossover building. World-famous dance crew Jabbawockeez will begin performing its celebrated MÜS.I.C show under the fabric-covered pavilion starting the first week in July through September. Fans and Las Vegas tourists attending the shows will have the unique experience of an outside venue, offering abundant natural light and cooler temperatures with zero obstructions to the stage.
Accu-Steel completed construction of the pavilion in approximately one week. With world-class support and customer service, Accu-Steel will ensure the structure maintains its high-quality characteristics throughout its summer use. This new pavilion in Las Vegas is another example of the versatility and unique application solutions fabric-covered buildings provide.
Jabbawockeez is a seven-member, male, hip-hop dance crew best known for winning the first season of America’s Best Dance Crew.
Through a combination of high-quality materials and a dedicated focus to details, Accu-Steel is establishing a reputation of constructing the best fabric-covered buildings supported by exceptional customer service. As an example of the company’s success with its customer base, several people are now employing Accu-Steel to perform repairs on competitors’ buildings.
Recently, Chris McCormick, a business owner southeast of Des Moines, Ia., purchased two buildings from an Accu-Steel competitor. The installation of these buildings, unfortunately, came with quite a bit of difficulty and disappointment. After discovering his relationship with the manufacturer and the company’s building standards didn’t meet his expectations — and construction was never fully completed — McCormick reached out to a friend to find a reputable company to finish and repair his new buildings.
