Load'em up: From pasture to feedyard

Watch as the DeBerrys, their cowboys, mentor and cattle buyer round up cattle to ship to the feedyard.

It's that time of year, cows are calving and stockers are en route to either the sale or the feedyard. In Olton, Texas, cousins Tracy and Aaron DeBerry, who partner on stocker calves, are shipping their cattle to Cactus Feeders. 

Farm Press recently documented one of their mornings gathering cattle. Catch a glimpse of their operation while also learning more about their transition from row crops to cattle, the importance of good fencing and their marketing strategy.
