Coffey County

Livestock Production

Coffey County in East-Central Kansas is nestled on the edge of the flinthills tall grass pasture region.   Beef enterprises include small to large cow/calf operations and stockers on grass pasture with a handful of feedlot facilities.  A couple of small scale dairies are also located in county.   These two sectors of the county's ag industry contributes approximately $40 mllion annually to the local economy in value of cattle and milk produced.  In addition to the cattle,  the county is also home to a large commercial confined swine production unit as well as small to medium sized sheep and goat flocks.
