For-Most began when Harvard Dorhout started manufacturing a cattle stanchion in 1961 for area cattlemen. The Model 10 had an innovative parallel squeeze and walk through design that revolutionized how cattle would be worked in the future. For-Most began marketing these products nationwide in 1964.
Harv’s philosophy of designing equipment that is safe, durable and easy to use continues today. For-Most is still a family owned company. Our products are manufactured with good old-fashioned midwestern work ethics and values in Hawarden, Iowa. Our employees and dealers are dedicated to providing our customers with quality products and service that is unmatched in today’s cash and carry marketplace. Our quality is never compromised and we continue to set industry standards for innovation and continuous improvements of our products. We also powder coat all of our equipment to ensure it will last for generations to come.
Cattle handling equipment is not a commodity and should not be purchased based on price alone. Value is a combination of performance, durability, and price. Inferior equipment will cost you more in lost profits due to cattle injuries, worker injuries and wasted time handling animals. For-Most has grown to be known as the top-of-the-line in cattle handling equipment because we provide terrific value for our customers. We invite you to join the list of thousands of satisfied customers who have discovered what a great value For-Most equipment is to them.
