Cargill sells two yards

Cargill has sold two feedlots in Kansas and Colorado to Green Plains Inc. for $36.7 million. The sale is still pending a definitive agreement and regulatory review. Cattle will continue to be marketed to Cargill. The former Cargill Leoti, Kansas, and Yuma, Colorado, feedlots were feeding some 155,000 cattle at the time of the sale. With the purchase of Cargill’s feedlots, Green Plains Cattle Company will become the fourth largest cattle feeder in the U.S. with a total capacity of more than 255,000 head.
