U.S. Premium Beef's Qualified Custom Feedlot (QCF) list is designed to assist producers who are looking for a feedlot that has knowledge and experience in finishing cattle for USPB's quality-based system.

  • are USPB unitholders, and make those units available for customer use.
  • actively promote U.S. Premium Beef to their customer base.
  • encourage the use of individual animal electronic identification systems.
  • consult veterinary expertise for selection and proper use of animal health products.

Call them for your commercial bull needs or for information regarding feeder cattle with their genetics.

QSS Ranches:

  • are USPB unitholders and can assist you in marketing your cattle to USPB.
  • strive to produce high quality genetics for all traits, especially the carcass traits needed to produce premiums on USPB's value-based grids.
  • actively promote U.S. Premium Beef to their customer base.

Although genetics play an important role in successful grid marketing, it is not a guarantee.

Many of these custom feeders offer USPB shares for lease and have the experience you need to maximize your cattle's genetic potential.
