Opportunities in livestock production abound across all of CVA’s trade territory in Nebraska, Kansas, and Iowa. CVA recently teamed up with Settje Engineering and Agri-Services to offer comprehensive nutrient management planning for livestock producers. Besides helping our livestock producers with managing their manure nutrients and compliance with regulatory requirements, Settje can help livestock producers expand their existing operations or even launch into a new livestock opportunity. I have traveled with several of Settje’s staff to visit with livestock producers.   Some are looking to expand a cattle feedlot, and others are looking at converting a portion of outdoor feedlots to cattle confinement barns. Pork producers may want to consider putting up a new hog barn or adding capacity to an existing operation. Central Valley Ag and Settje will work together to show each producer options and walk them through the permitting, design, and building process. We can look ahead to your soil fertility needs to help you manage the nutrients in your manure. If your operation is already well supplied with past manure nutrients, we can help you market that manure product to operations in need of those nutrients.

Starting the conversation with CVA and Settje early will help a new or expanding livestock producer simplify the process and avoid missteps along the way. Settje’s relationships with NRCS and NDEQ/DNR will make the permitting process go smoothly and make sure all of the proper steps are taken. Settje has experience with multiple building configurations both for managing the animals and managing the manure from those animals. Together we can find a solution that works for your operation and your goals.     

Central Valley Ag strives to be your trusted advisor in many aspects of your business. Our relationship with Settje Engineering and Agri-Services provide CVA to expand our offers on how we can assist our livestock producers.
