The main challenge of this 8-month expansion project was overcoming very sandy soil. With multiple crews working, we utilized a cement stabilization incorporated base under the road material to ensure longevity of the asphalt millings.
Our turnkey design and construction experience allowed the creation of a state-of-the-art processing and monitoring facility, catered to the client’s needs. After consulting with livestock experts, the project incorporates features that better protect cattle and cowboys alike.
For the first time, we constructed a 30-inch feed truck apron as a monolithic pour with the feed bunk. This design strategy provides the owner with durable roads against the bunk that will last for many years. This technology and design incorporation is the new standard in feedyard construction, addressing the age-old problem of road weakness against the bunk.
