Direct Sales - Private Label Profits Add Up for Louisiana Cattleman

By Dan Miller, DTN/Progressive Farmer

Wooldridge Land & Cattle is assembled among the hills and bottomlands of the Red River valley in Louisiana. Five miles from the Texas border and 15 miles from Arkansas, 500 mama cows graze within sight of a century-old oil field and the first well ever drilled over water. Shreveport, Louisiana is 30 minutes south. In that city of 200,000 Marty Wooldridge hopes to uncover demand for a new business venture.
