Today, Beef Marketing Group (BMG) markets some 600,000 head of cattle a year from 19 member yards in Kansas and Nebraska. Although it’s been a closed coop from the outset, five feedyards were invited to join recently to help boost the numbers BMG could bring to Tyson.
“We treat Tyson like we’re partners rather than adversaries,” says Lee Borck, BMG’s chairman of the board. “As numbers tightened up in the last couple of years, it was obvious it would be beneficial to them if we were able to provide more numbers.”
