When U.S. Farm Report visited Hartley Feeders in 2015, the picture wasn't as green. Sterling Profit Tracker showed in October 2015, feedyards were losing an average of $500 per head. Today, it's a complete 180 degree difference with Sterling Profit Tracker showing for the week ending May 12th, feedyards saw $536 per head gains. With more attractive prices, feedyards are packed with lighter carcass weights.
