Best quality feeders for your farm!


Our Company

We Provide High-Quality Feeders

Herd-Boss Feeders was started in 2015 by Joe Thramer in Ericson, NE. After distillers came along, Joe wanted to have an easier way to feed his cattle. So he started designing and it led to Herd-Boss Feeders. After being the owner of Herd-Boss Feeders for 5 years, Joe decided it was time to sell. Since Ironwood 53 in Rock Valley, IA was producing these feeders for him, he approached the owner, Mike Post wanting to sell to him since it fit his existing businesses. At the beginning of March 2020, the Herd-Boss company was officially sold to Ironwood 53.
