Andrew Rogers, Pinnacle View Farm

Fence Line Feeding System
Grant Award: $8,000

Andrew has added a fence line feeding system to the farm. The new structure allows Andrew and his father to safely feed their cattle while also reducing feed waste. The raised platform will keep rolled hay out of the mud and this area cuts down on the damage the cattle’s hooves do to the pasture. The animals will also benefit by not having to stand in mud. Andrew says the new system will help keep the animals healthy through the winter and will enable him to finish calves more quickly.

Andrew sells cattle at the WNC Regional Livestock center as well as to local beef producers.
