Hog Slat Inc. got its start in 1969, when Billy Herring was operating a farrow-to-finish farm near Newton Grove, NC, and couldn't find appropriate flooring for the nursery he wanted to build. So, relying on his ingenuity and experience, he constructed his own slats. Other producers noticed the quality of his product, called on him for help, and a small family business was born. Today, that business produces a full range of hog and poultry farming equipment.
Hog Slat’s main corporate office is located in Newton Grove, North Carolina; with regional offices in Humboldt, Iowa and Guymon, Oklahoma. The poultry divisions of our company are operated under the Georgia Poultry Equipment, Eastern Shore Poultry Services and Shenandoah AG Supply companies.
Hog Slat, Inc. is a family-owned business engaged in many aspects of hog and poultry production.
We are involved in:
(1) turnkey construction of modern confinement type hog and poultry production units
(2) the manufacture and distribution of hog and poultry production equipment
(3) the production of live hogs
