Matthew Nichols, Nichols Beef Farm
Working Facilities and Bulk Feed Trailer
Grant Award: $8,000
To provide a safer and more efficient system for maintaining his herd of beef cattle, Matthew will purchase a squeeze chute, scales, and a bulk feed trailer.
This handling equipment will result in savings of time and fuel and the bulk trailer will save him money with the ability to purchase bulk feed. The scales will give Matthew accurate weights which will help him sell cattle off of his farm to local buyers. The scales will also enable him to administer medications in correct dosage based on weight.
