Who We Are

About Producers Livestock

In an ever-changing world, you can count on Producers Livestock to be consistent and provide reliable guidance and support. We are proud to be the trusted partner for livestock producers across the Midwest for over 85 years.

Producers Livestock was created in 1936 to fill the need for regional representation for livestock producers. A decade later, Producers Livestock was the leading livestock broker on the Omaha market, and we haven’t looked back since.

Our team truly understands the problems you face when it comes to raising livestock, because we’re livestock producers ourselves. But more importantly, we know how to find solutions that make your operation more profitable.
