Green Plains Cattle Company’s Sublette, Kansas feedyard is a 56,000 head feedyard.
The yard is located at the intersection of Highway 83 and Highway 160 in southwest Kansas. The feedyard was built in 1969 by a group of investors and was called Old Sante Fe Feeders. The feedyard started small and included a restaurant and gas station. It got its name from the townsite it was built on, however, after the railroad came through, the town of “Old Santa Fe” was moved six miles south and is now called “Sublette”. Later, National Farms bought the feedyard and over the next several years, they made two expansions bringing the feedyard to its current capacity of 56,000 head. In 2002 National Farms sold the feedyard to Bartlett Cattle Company.
On August 1, 2018 Green Plains Inc. acquired the yard along with a feedyard in Tulia, Texas from Bartlett.
