The Briggs family began finishing cattle in 1935. Rex Briggs started the operation just outside of Seward, Nebraska and his sons Bill and Bob took over management of Briggs Feed Yard in the late 70's. Today, the third generation of the Briggs family, Mike Briggs, is involved in the business and marketing aspects of the feed yard. We've seen a lot of things change over the years. But through it all we have held fast to the Briggs family philosophy -
"We Treat Other People's Cattle As If They Were Our Own"
HIGHER QUALITY BEEF
Briggs Cattle Co. is on the cutting edge of a new approach to finishing beef. We are capable of producing the highest quality beef. It begins with high quality cattle - beef cattle that have the potential to command top dollar. We apply an intense hands-on management technique, utilizing advanced diagnostic technologies, custom rations, and an understanding of value-based marketing concepts.
Located in the heart of grain production country, Briggs Cattle Co. procures grain from local producers and utilizes corn by products from a nearby ethanol producer to achieve an excellent return on ration investment. Being in close proximity to numerous packing houses within a 150 mile radius creates a competitive market for bidders of high quality beef.
