DemKota Ranch Beef is a modern beef processing plant which, in just a few years, has grown from a small regional packer to one of the largest employers in the region.
The idea for a beef processing plant located in Aberdeen, SD came from area farmers, ranchers, and agri-business professionals who believed a regional cattle processing facility would be a great benefit, not only for themselves and their businesses, but for the Aberdeen community as well. DemKota was built to provide local cattle producers access to beef processing where they raise their animals and help keep their family legacies prosperous. In fact, all the cattle DemKota processes come from within a 300-mile radius of the Aberdeen plant.
Our size allows us to focus on high-quality instead of volume. By doing so, DemKota has been successful in taking locally raised beef to the global market.
We recognize our workforce makes the difference. Our teams are focused on making our company strong through employee and food safety, quality, proper training, and excellent customer service.
