000 fine. and multiple customers were inside the building at the time of the shooting,D. east of Watertown In 1987 he and his wife Donita started their operation on rented land and started feeding baby Holstein calves in 2003In 2007 they built the first mono-slope feedlot barn a 60-by-210-foot mono-slope to feed up to 500 head of cattle In 2011 they built a second 80-by-360-foot mono-slope barn and became a 1999-head CAFOThe operation has up to 10 different groups each with meticulous records that are cross-checked at a glance with a whiteboard in the office telling initial weights dates shots death losses and remaining inventory "We had the passion and know-how for how to feed cattle and so we did" Moes saysTech-tacticsMoes embraces technology Two years ago Moes Feedlot installed a camera system for security allowing them to observe the barns from the office or an iPad smartphones — anywhereSo when they start calving in the beef herd in mid-February the camera allows Moes to zoom in and see if cows and calves need help "We can count the straws down in that bedding" Moes saysThe feeding system includes identification tags to allow for increased efficiency in sorting The Moes family weighs the cattle every 120 days and any animal that hits 1500 pounds is sorted for marketingFeedlots are built with a one-foot-tall concrete "curb" The lower height improves summertime air flow and is lower than most "We can feed from a 250-pound calf along this curb all the way up to a finished calf the way we designed it" he says An outside feedlot is heavily sloped from west to east for drainage to the settlement ponds and even its 16-foot-wide paved feed alley is sloped to the middle rain or snowmelt runs away from the feed bunksContent cowsMoes is always particularly concerned with cattle comfort and has implemented enough space for his herd to move around Holstein steers can walk outside and have ample space — up to 80 square feet per calf Mondays and Fridays the Moes crews clean around the edges and re-bed with cornstalksWhen the calves aren’t eating they are out lying down on the pack Moes says which indicates they’re comfortable and content He and his staff delight in seeing "rambunctious" calves — clean straw with clean pens and coats free of "tag" or hanging mud and manure"I don’t care what color cattle are" Moes says to a visitor "If you keep them comfortable they gain They do good"Son Bryan now 30 joined the operation in 2014 Lee Tol 35 one of John’s nephews is also full-time and a key employee The feedlot typically hires two or three students from Lakes Area Vocational Technical Institute in Watertown They hire animal science interns from South Dakota State University in Brookings who help with the artificial insemination of all 300 head of Angus beef cows every in JuneFor the past 13 years John has worked with George Perry an SDSU beef reproduction specialist The AI protocols have helped increase longevity on their cows and pounds-of-gain by 40 to 50 pounds on their calves produced from synchronizing calving schedules according to dataLike clockworkIt’s "like clockwork anymore" John says of the operation’s processesAt 13 months old the calves are market ready at a high market grade "We’ve been 98 percent ‘Choice’ or better on them going back out on the grid direct to the packing plants" he says "We get rid of them in April and May before the price does go down That really helps a lot"In April and May of last year the price was $15 to $20 per hundredweight higher than it was in June and July John says On a 1300-pound animal that’s $130 of profit the Moes try to capture up frontIn the past the farm purchased 250-pound Holsteins calves Today they buy 400- to 500-pound Holstein calves and market them at 12 months at 1500 pounds per animal They buy them from across the US — Ohio Missouri and Washington for example — bringing 150 to 300 head at a time to help match their pen size They have about 10 distinct groups at a time"We’re putting just about 100 pounds a month on these calves" John says of the Holstein This allows them to forward contract"We’ve got to have a profit locked in on these otherwise we can’t bring them in" John says "Otherwise we couldn’t sleep at night with this number of cattle around"Profits today are not what they were a year or two ago "Instead of making $150 to $200 a head we’re probably down to half that" As a counter move they’ve put off capital purchases this last year"We push these calves from the day they come in at a 58 megacalories up to 62 megacalorie ration against a backdrop of implants every 120 to 200 days" he saysThe Holsteins use about 200000 bushels of corn a year purchasing about two-thirds of it The Moes family buys 4000 bales of corn stalks about 2000 bales of wheat straw Holstein steers receive a mix of wheat straw rolled corn and distiller’s grains The "distiller’s" is a so-called "bypass" protein so the Moes crews adds a pound of urea-based non-bypass protein per day which helps hold the distiller’s grain in the digestive system for a longer periodAn open bookMoes realizes CAFOs aren’t universally popular but is proud of his production and environmental record The farm has been nominated three times for the prestigious Leopold Conservation AwardThe farm started rotational grazing ten years ago and they’ve done more than 20 acres of tree plantings including some around their feedlots which help dissipate feedlot odors They’ve also put in seven acres of pollinator plantings The South Dakota Department of Natural Resources checks the facility for manure application rate protocols "In this day and age we all have to be environmentally safe" Moes saysRunoff water goes through a screen and the gray water goes into settlement ponds for evaporation or pumping out The manure is a "natural fertilizer" and has built organic matter from 25 percent to 45 to 5 percent on the farmland improving its water holding capabilityHe emphasizes that his cattle are effectively "drug-free" when they go to slaughter He says the implant hormones simply replace the amounts steers would have if they were intact bulls "But if we had all bulls the tenderness of the product would not be there" he says and the end-product is healthful "An 8-ounce serving of our beef has hardly any estrogen in there any more than what you’d naturally have" he saysCattlemen are responding to consumers and he says he’s happy to show them howThe meeting which is open to the public begins at 5:30 pm at the Mark Sanford Education Center at 2400 47th Ave SAt the meeting the negotiating teams will respond to the July 7 report by the North Dakota Education Fact Finding Commission which offered recommendations on teacher salaries

Fact Finding Commission The commission gathered position documents from both sides and held a public meeting June 15 to hear testimony from all interested partiesIn its July 7 report the fact-finding
