Drought Leads to Closure of Hays Feeders Yard


HAYS, Kan. (AP) — The owners of Hays Feeders say the feed lot will close when the cattle are liquidated after January 1. Jerry Bohn is general manager of Pratt Feeders, which owns Hays Feeders and three other cattle yards in Kansas and Oklahoma. He says two years of drought caused over-capacity for cattle feeders, and the Hays yard was doing the least amount of business. Bohn says he and others hope that the economy will improve and the Hays yard will be reopened in the future. The Salina Journal reports some of the 16 employees will be transferred to other feed yards and some will stay in Hays to oversee the property.
