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 has purchased and installed livestock scales and a squeeze chute on a concrete pad. The new equipment has saved time and money and is making Matt’s beef cattle operation more profitable.

With the new cattle handling equipment, he no longer has to take his cattle offsite to weigh and work them. The bulk feed trailer is a huge improvement over buying feed in bags.
