2020 Arturo Armendariz Distinguished Service Award Recipient

Dwight Doffin


Dwight Doffin has devoted 30 years to the cattle industry with FELLER & CO in Wisner, Nebraska. FELLER & CO was just in its infancy in 1989 when Doffin started.

Doffin is a major part of the company’s growth and success. In 1992, FELLER & CO decided to expand to another county. Doffin was tapped to head up the construction and establish the relationships needed to get the project going.

Doffin is a graduate of Northeast Community College. He is a member of the NECC judging team, Mid-States Rodeo Association, NE Cattlemen and Cuming County Feeders, and a past president of Stanton County Feeders. Doffin’s work ethic and commitment is a great asset to FELLER & CO through his 30 years of his employment. His range of expertise runs from animal health, bunk reads, cattle performance, mill operation, yard construction, troubleshooting, employee management, cattle purchases, customer relations, mechanics and, at times, “management consoling.” Doffin’s 80-hour weeks were standard for many years, always coming with a let’s “Get-R-Done” attitude. His leadership is respected and admired because he works alongside peers on any project in front of him. From all aspects of feedyard management, he understands how to connect the dots. Doffin is committed, reliable and brings unprecedented integrity to his job and the industry.

Other than work, his hobby is rodeos. He’s participated in the Mid-States Rodeo Finals numerous times. Doffin’s significant other, Katie, has three boys — Colton, Austin and Kash — and he enjoys following in their education and rodeo careers. In addition to managing the feedlot, he feeds his own cattle and has farmland he owns and farms. Congratulations, Dwight Doffin, for this well-deserved award.
