Environmental protection played a dominant role in the design and layout of our yard. As a new facility, we were subject to strict environmental regulations.

Feedyards constructed in the early 1970s are grandfathered from all regulations regarding run-off and other ecological concerns.

We sought to gain maximum benefit from the terrain and still protect the natural resources of the land. By using full run-off retention systems and a clay-based lagoon, we meet the newest, most rigid environmental conditions.

By building on clay soil, impervious to water and sludge seepage, we keep unwanted pollutants from tainting the precious aquifer that vitalizes the Panhandle. Instead, the water evaporates from the lagoon, to rejoin the natural water cycle.

We shaped the land to meet Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission regulations. The excess dirt was packed to mold DCCF's terrain into an ideal drainage system, thus keeping cattle from standing in water and mud for excessive periods of time.

The benefit is clear: dry cattle perform better than those stuck in the mud.
