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 corporate office is located in Newton Grove, NC, with regional offices in Iowa and Oklahoma. The poultry divisions of our company are operated under the Georgia Poultry and Eastern Shore Poultry Services companies.
