One company with one common vision was formed when six feed yards and three farms were merged together under one cohesive management structure overseen by a very experienced Board of Directors. ILS is a group of feed yards located in the heart of cattle feeding country in Kansas and Nebraska.
Each business unit independently focuses on quality and customer service to maintain established business relationships. However, by working together it allows each feed yard to provide a broader line of products and services to long-term customers and new customers alike. These economies of scale provide the framework for greater efficiency and improved cattle performance. We believe this vertically integrated business structure is the way of the future for modern agriculture.
Today, ILS has grown into an organization with a feeding capacity of 150,000 head and a farming operation that exceeds 27,500 acres of dry land and irrigated crop production. Strong leadership and experienced personnel drives ILS and allows for the flexibility and capital required to meet the ever changing market demands necessary to satisfy our customers.
The ILS management and its employees are dedicated to the principals that made all of its individual feed yards successful for over 50 years. At ILS, we believe there is no nobler of a profession than to grow quality food for mankind.
This is what we do and we do it very well!
ILS will be the innovative leader in agriculture by profitably leading and influencing industry development and standards.
The mission of Innovative Livestock Services is to manage the investments and maximize the profit potential of its stockholders and customers.
