Welcome to the Iowa Custom Cattle Feeders Directory

Iowa ranks fifth nationally in the number of cattle and calves on feed. Custom feeding is a big part of the Iowa cattle feeding industry and is the fastest growing segment. Custom feeding in Iowa has several advantages.

These Iowa feedlots are nearly all owned and operated by on-site, hands-on farm families that have a wealth of experience in cattle feeding. These custom feedlots offer a wide range of services to help you decide where to feed your cattle. 

Iowa is the best place to feed cattle when you add up the benefits - low feed costs, quality forages, ethanol co-products, access to feeder cattle, competitive markets and the personal touch of family-owned businesses.

Below is a list of feeders in Iowa that are professional with a full list of services available to investors and retained ownership clients.
