How long have you been employed with Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment?

I have worked at Tarter for 19 years.

What is your current position with Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment?

I am the Plant Manager for the Tarter Tube Division.

What type of animals do you own?

I currently own cattle, sheep, goats, geese, peacocks, and chickens.

Which Tarter Farm and Ranch Equipment product is your favorite?

My favorite Tarter product is the Bullmax Round Corner Gate (2″ 6-Bar Extra Heavy-Duty Bull Gate). It’s the piece of farm equipment that you pay a little more for, and cattle have a hard time tearing up. I also think the Steelcor Cattle Hay Feeder (14G20) is the best hay feeder that Tarter offers.

Do you have any tips/tricks you’d like to offer?

A tip for these heavy-duty gates that I would recommend, is make sure your post is big enough and deep enough to handle the weight these gates pack with them. It’s also a good practice to use a hinge pin to help carry the latch side of the gate. This will add life to your post and keep the gate from having that sagging look.

Tarter’s Steelcor Cattle Hay Feeder is designed for high pressure, heavy use environments. For more information on this feeder and other Tarter feeders, please visit our website: http://www.tarterusa.com
