Prater’s roots are firmly grounded in the feed industry, with over 90 years of experience in providing innovative solutions to customers around the world. While we have expanded and branched out to other industries throughout the decades, we began by producing feed equipment and we have never lost touch with our roots. Following our initial hammermill, we continued to evolve and augment the design by producing many different, specialized prototypes for better energy efficiency. To this day, the hammermill is still an important aspect of feed equipment due to its ability to uniformly mill and operate 24 hours a day with little maintenance.
Industry needs have developed over the years and Prater is proud to have grown with the feed industry by continuing to meet their changing needs with updated technology and advancements. Some of our major customers include Purina, Cargill, and Central Soya, and they have entrusted Prater for consistently reliable, cost-effective feed processing equipment and systems. We look forward to continuing to adapt and improve our feed milling, batching, and weighing in the future to maintain our spot as the paragon of feed equipment manufacturing.
