Since 1964, Priefert Manufacturing, Inc. has been the recognized leader in livestock handling equipment. With a broad range of products and a host of endorsements by major organizationssuch as the Professional Rodeo Cowboys' Association (PRCA), Professional Bull Riders' (PBR), United States Team Roping (USTRC) and more, Priefert arenas, chutes, stalls and other components are the preferred equipment at facilities across the United States. In addition, demand for Priefert equipment abroad has increased significantly as our reputation for quality, integrity and reliability has become more widely known.
For years, fairgrounds and expo centers have been designed by the local board-of-directors and community architects to achieve a look based on visual concepts. With limited experience regarding livestock, designers have often overlooked key factors related to safe, functional and efficient handling of large livestock. Historically, Priefert has been contracted late in the building of such facilities to resolve design and integration issues as they relate to livestock flow. All too often, costly last-minute changes for custom manufactured or specially fitted equipment resulted in costly delays. To save such projects both time and money, Priefert Complex Designs (PCD) was formed in 2008. Today, a growing number of clients have realized the value of PCD's early involvement; to consult throughout the project or take the lead for design of entire projects from the beginning.
