Hog Slat TDM Farms

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.

The business is now run by his three sons, David, Tommy and Mark Herring. Hog Slat, Inc. is a family-owned business engaged in many aspects of hog and poultry production.

Hog Slat is involved in :
(1) turnkey construction of confinement type and hog and poultry units,
(2) the manufacture and distribution of hog and poultry equipment, and
(3) the production of live hogs.

The company is the largest contractor and manufacturer of hog equipment in the United States with approximately 1,000 people directly employed and an additional 1,400 subcontractors working on the company’s construction projects. Hog Slat / Georgia Poultry has constructed turnkey units for both family farms and large corporate farm units in the United States. Hog Slat / Georgia Poultry also sells equipment packages to customers who choose to construct their own facilities, both domestically and internationally.

TDM Farms, Inc. is a hog production company comprised of operations in North Carolina, Indiana and Illinois. Currently selling over 500,000 market hogs annually, the company raises livestock in both company owned farms and contract farms with the majority of pigs grown in wean to finish facilities. By raising our own livestock, we stay connected to the needs of swine producers.

TDM Farms also operates two research facilities. One is a company owned sow farm in North Carolina and the other is a wean to finish contract farm in Indiana. With the capability to test new products (steel, concrete, feeding, heating, ventilation, etc.), we can provide proven cost effective and efficient equipment for our customers.

TDM Farms’ experience in raising hogs along with the ability to test new products will continue to allow them to design efficient equipment and buildings to establish the logistics necessary to maintain the animal flow of large multi-site operations.
