In this paper, we describe a feed distribution problem encountered on a cattle ranch in Arizona. The problem is cast as a collection of split-delivery capacitated rural postman problem with time windows on arcs. We discuss the generic problems and several heuristics. The heuristics we discuss were tested and compared favourably with the working practices on the cattle ranch.
