The Ellsworth, Neb., man was in on the ground level of developing one of the industry's most recognized – and first – beef cattle composites. While the whole thing was "a pretty big undertaking," the soft-spoken Vince Poppe explains "I felt like we did extremely well. On over 1,200 cows, we added an average of about $300 per calf over high market value. It was all related to: number one, a very dedicated breeding program and secondly, the willingness to market them in specific areas."
