How can we make the claim of selling the strongest, heaviest feed bins on the market at the best possible price to swine and poultry growers?
Simple. Our direct distribution system eliminates the additional markup that dealers have to add to the bin’s price. Instead, that money goes back into building a stronger bin manufactured from heavier steel. These longer lasting bins are built with 5-10% more steel, by weight, than competitive brands.

Most manufacturers only use 50,000 psi structural steel for the bin sheets and legs to reduce costs. Hog Slat bins are constructed entirely of GRADE 55 structural steel. The bin sheets, legs, roof sheets, bottom cone sheets…the entire bin.
The bottom cone sheets of a bin are subjected to extra abuse from hammers and mallets used to dislodge bridging feed. That’s why we used thicker steel to resist dings and dents.
We build the bin collar out of heavier 10 gauge steel to eliminate having to add additional reinforcing collars. The collar is stamped to reduce variations in dimensions compared to rolled or spun collars.
Every Hog Slat / Georgia Poultry bin is manufactured in-house for complete control of raw material purchasing and manufacturing operations. Our facility includes state-of-art rolling, stamping and finishing machinery to ensure precise fit and finish.
