Ranching Is Just One Part Of Prewitt's Involvement In The Cattle Industry

 

In addition to his ranch, Rod Prewitt is one of the owners of Prewitt Trust, he is the owner of Valley VU Feedlot, is one of the owners of Sidney Livestock, and is partial owner of Prewitt & Company along with his two partners Tim Larson and Mike Yore.

Rod Prewitt has been involved in the cattle industry all of his life. He grew up on a ranch and his father had a sale barn and traded cattle. Today, Prewitt is one of the owners of Prewitt Trust; he also owns Valley VU Feedlot, is one of the owners of Sidney Livestock, and is partial owner of Prewitt & Company along with his two partners Tim Larson and Mike Yore. Prewitt operates a ranch ten miles north of Sidney and four miles west of Fairview, which was established in 2003. It is a family operation and Prewitt's son Chantz along with his three sons, Chase, Tyrel, and Rowdie Prewitt are all involved.

Prewitt's have a herd of approximately 1,500 mother cows; cattle are kept on pastureland throughout the summer and are moved to a feedlot during the winter. Red Angus cows, known for their calm disposition and few calving problems, are bred to Red Angus or Charolais bulls, with their large and heavily muscled frames. Calves are kept at the Valley VU Feedlot in Fairview, which feeds 8,000 to 9,000 head of cattle throughout the winter. Calves are kept at the feedlot until the first or second week of January and are then sold through contract sales in Minnesota and Iowa.
