Welcome to Used Swine Equipment!

About our business:  We started the business  by accident almost  19 years ago when I was in Duncan  Oklahoma and noticed the interest  people took in the pig equipment in my pens. The following spring we took out some farrowing crates and sent them to Texas.  That summer we sold our first double buildings.

Since we started the business in 2000 we have sold to every state except  Hawaii.. We have also sold to Canada numerous times, Jamaica, and also have shipped to Martha’s Vineyard.

In my day job as a Senior Buyer for a privately held firm that makes fractional horsepower motors, I buy items from all over the world. A buy/sell transaction has to be good for both parties.  It is one thing to buy something, but then you have to get it transported. My knowledge and contacts in my day job, allow me to help my customers  by offering competitive rates on shipments

Call my cell phone, which is 563-543-4267. If I do not answer leave a message and a best time to call you back.. I work in an office during the day and will not answer.

The top third of my website is stuff we own, the middle third is buildings we are selling for people, and the bottom third is stuff we are selling for people on a commission basis. We do not have online sales as we offer competitive prices every day. The pictures you use are what we are selling. I update this website on a regular basis.

We move a lot of stuff, so if you see it and want it, don’t wait, please contact me. I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

We also  are a part of Berkwood Farms and raise purebred Berkshires hogs – Our website is http://betterpork.com/ . We do not feed Ractopamine (aka Paylean) to our hogs. and our vet work is done by Ken Miller of Manchester, IA,

As you can see some of the units are Double L farrowing and nursery buildings. These buildings have self contained pits and can be easily moved down the road and taken to another site.  I sell the used units and if you want a price on a new unit, contact  the outside sales people,  Shane and Sandy Landt. Their contact info.  is sandy_landt@hotmail.com .

02 01 2017 – From Shelby  Iowa

Thanks again for the gates, that worked out perfect for me and very happy with the quality.

From Kelby in Maine on August 29, 2016, “Once again you’ve made me a very very happy farmer thanks Ray!”

Ray, sorry I meant to email you first thing this morning.  Yes, Paul made it.  Michele and I wanted to take the time to tell you it was GREAT working with you.  We were extremely happy with the quality of the crates.  Paul did an outstanding job.  We paid him his delivery fee and gave him the check for you.  We are going to take inventory this weekend and start piecing them together.  But we were very happy with the experience and our daughter was super excited.  Thanks for making it a great experience Ray.  We will be doing business with for sure in the future.
