TORRINGTON, Wyo. – In December, Dinklage Feed Yard fired up its new mill with twice the capacity for feed output at its property east of Torrington.

Dinklage also owns feed yards in Sidney, Neb., and Proctor and Fort Morgan, Colo.

“We built a nice new feed mill, and we built it with local contractors,” Carman said. “We make our living feeding cattle and giving them the very best care that
