Shawn Tiffany co-owns Tiffany Cattle Company in Herington, Kansas, with his brother Shane.
Tiffany Cattle Company operates custom cattle finishing facilities in Morris and McPherson
counties with a combined capacity of 32,000 head. The business has earned the Certified
Angus Beef Feedlot Commitment to Excellence Award and focuses on feeding front end
genetics for producers throughout the midwest.
Shawn manages the business’s farmland which includes an innovative no-till and cover crop
strategy on which customer cattle are grazed and feedstuffs for the feedlot are raised. TCC
typically has cattle in grazing systems 10 months of the year and produces all of the business’s
silage needs. Soil health is a big part of the operation’s focus and cover crops and grazing play
an integral role in that philosophy.
“Soil health means sustainability, profitability, and economics for not only our families but also
the families that we serve. Healthy and sustainable farming systems ensure that each of us has
something to look forward to in the future. Ultimately, it is simply stewardship of creation.”
Soil health is a big part of the operation’s focus.
“Soil health means sustainability, profitability, economics, lines of business for our customers and something for my children to look forward to in the future. Because if I am not taking care of the soil today there is not going to be a whole lot left to pass on to them,” Shawn said.
