This is the beef feedlot owned by Gilbert and his daughter Angie. A feedlot is a farm that specializes in raising beef cattle to market weight.
From 15 months up to 24 months old, the beef animal will typically be brought to a finished market weight of approximately 550 to 600 kg in specialized feedlots. In these specialized facilities, cattle are able to socialize and have free access to feed and water. Feedlot housing practices are very diverse from farm to farm, ranging from open dry yards where protection is provided from inclement weather to indoor confinement housing.
