"Woo, pig, sooie!" isn't just the official chant of the Arkansas Razorbacks' sports teams. It is how many hog farmers call their animals at feeding time. Hog Slat provides a slew of swine-related product and services. The company manufactures pig farming equipment, including floor slabs and tiles, as well as hog penning, breeding, feeding, handling, and watering supplies. It also provides construction services for hog stalls (farrowing crates) and raises hogs at its own facilities. Hog Slat also distributes poultry equipment in the southeastern US through a sister company.
Headquartered in North Carolina, Hog Slat also has regional offices in Iowa and Oklahoma. It serves customers around the US.
The largest contractor and manufacturer of hog equipment in the US Hog Slat employs 1,000 people directly employed and an additional 1,400 subcontractors working on the company's various construction projects. Sister company Georgia Poultry Equipment Company is engaged in the distribution of poultry equipment in the southeastern US (Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee).
The company is owned and run by the Herring family.
Hog Slat was founded by Billy Herring in 1969.
