Feeder Calf Program

We have continuously stived to provide quality genetics and build lasting relationships. We are grateful for the support and trust that is instilled upon us and want to continue our commitment to give back to our loyal customers now and for years to come.

After many successful years working together, we have partnered with Johnson Livestock, a 20,000 head capacity feedlot in Idaho Falls. Both Riverbend and Johnsons are aiming to help existing as well as new customers capture deserved and substantial premiums by producing high quality cattle. We will be able to provide data from calf health, feedlot performance to carcass quality. This will not only enhance our commitment to support our customers but will also provide added value to allow customers make profitability decisions.
