The J. R. Simplot Company is one of the largest privately held food and agribusiness companies in the nation, though at heart we’re as small as a single farmer. We pioneer innovations in plant nutrition and food processing, research new ways to feed animals and sustain ecosystems, and strive to feed a growing global population.

Decades ago, the J. R. Simplot Company launched its cattle feeding business to put the potato by-products generated by our food processing plants to good use. We have fed millions of cattle over the years by utilizing our own food by-products as part of a grain-based professionally balanced ration.

But it’s not only cattle nutrition that Simplot is concerned about. Our feedlot management services also include the following items.

Financing: Simplot can provide cattle and/or feed financing.

Marketing: Our access to three major beef packers means we can help you market your fat cattle.

Veterinary care: On-site vets monitor and care for your cattle.

Transportation: With our own fleet of cattle trucks, Simplot can haul cattle to the feedlot and the packer.

Computerized animal records: We efficiently monitor feedings and other data to keep costs low and your results high.

Other advantages of custom cattle feeding with Simplot include:

Mild climate year-round

Steam-flaked corn and by-product availability

Ability to feed pens from 100 to 1,000 head

Access to our professional nutritionist

Two feedlots for you to select from

The headquarters of Simplot Land & Livestock is located in Grand View, Idaho, but we have two feedlot management facilities. The first facility is in Grand View, Idaho and the second is in Pasco, Washington.
