Nick Chesnut, Operations Manager - Feed Yard Division

As the operations manager of Cattle Empire, I oversee our four (4) cattle finishing facilities. I joined the CE team in July of 2003 from Northeast New Mexico where I had managed a small feed yard near Clayton. It was through that job that I came to know the Browns of CE as we were feeding some cattle for them at the time. I enjoy the fast and challenging pace of CE as well as the access to owners for quick responses and resources available to get things done.

I am a Texas/New Mexico native, having grown up on my family's operation that straddles the state line in far Northwest Texas. My lovely wife of 20 years, Susan, and I have four grown daughters and 7 awesome grandchildren. It has been my good fortune to be at CE for over 10 years - the growth and change of this organization has been dynamic!
