Early in their careers, they realized that dealing with hog manure waste was a continual challenge. As the age of confinement hog barns began, barns where hog manure was beneath the barn in hog pits popped up across the state, and area farmers developed a need to have the hog pits pumped out and land applied. This meant long hours of driving a tractor and spreader, pumping the waste out of the barns, and land applying it onto nearby farm ground. Realizing this need, they took a gamble and leveraged everything they had (with the help of their father) on their first high flotation spreader truck. By using a high flotation spreader truck, they could spread the waste quicker and at a lesser cost. With their entire assets pledged and everything on the line, they were “all in” and decided to open a side business of pumping manure for other farmers.
