Kirkpatrick Locker
​The Agribusiness Farm harvests and processes its meat locally at ​ Kirkpatrick Locker in Winterset, Iowa. Beef can be purchased by the quarter, half, or whole. Pork can be purchased by the half or whole. 

The DMACC Dallas County Farm takes orders throughout the year on a first come first served basis to sell its locally grown beef and pork. Animals are raised in an educational environment free of growth hormones, treated with a preventative vaccine early in life to keep the herd health strong and viable with limited use of antibiotics.

Cattle are fed a mixture of corn, hay, silage, and a limited amount of distillers grains. Also included in the ration are vitamin and mineral packets as recommended for optimum health. ​Swine rations consist of corn and soybean meal with vitamins and minerals. All grain and hay fed to these animals is raised on the farm and harvested by DMACC students or interns as a part of their lab activities.

packaged beef from the DMACC FarmIn an effort to allow everyone to customize their order and to avoid unsold product sitting in storage, we like to have a full animal sold before sending to the locker.

So, if you order a 1/4 or a half please bear with us as we work to fill a complete animal order.
