Filson Livestock Equipment
Serving Cattlemen Since 1946
Filson Livestock Equipment has over 70 years experience in quality workmanship and materials that make their product top of the line. This equipment is ideal for feedlots, veterinarian services and small and large cattle usage.
The first cattle chute was constructed in 1946, by first generation, Ben Filson. The chute was made of used odds and ends, pipe, one-way gears and other old pieces of metal, but it worked! As time went on, Ben was asked to build a few more chutes for area farmers and ranchers. He expanded his sales territory by selling off the back of his truck at sale barns. In 1959, his son, Gary Filson, joined his father and by this time, a number of dealers had been established throughout the Midwest. In 1979, third generation Kendal Filson joined his father Gary, continuing the legacy of affordable quality equipment.
As the cattle industry has changed, other livestock products have been added. Today, Filson's have a full line of equipment to meet the needs of cattlemen throughout the USA and abroad.
