Excerpt from Tri-State Neighbor magazine – June 27, 2014 Edition
Ellsworth, Minn., farmer Aric Leuthold said his cattle seem remarkably relaxed in his new fabric-covered confinement building just north of the family farm’s tree grove on the far corner of a corn field.
The 272-foot by 46-foot structure with two pens has a capacity of 250 cattle.
The 24-year-old Leuthold, who has a 50-50 partnership with his dad, Carl, starts feeding 300-pound Holstein calves in the building and finishes them until they are taken to slaughter in Dakota City, Neb.
“I just never imagined a building where they would be so comfortable. It’s shaded, and they don’t get all worked up,” he said.
The structure was manufactured by western Iowa-based Accu-Steel Inc., which has almost 20 years of experience in engineering fabric-covered buildings. The company, with offices and its plant near Templeton and Carroll, touts its buildings as being ideal for the fed cattle industry.
Leuthold would agree.
