Dave Klocke is a lifelong pork producer from west central Iowa who creates solutions to common issues in swine operations. Having been awarded 2 patents and 1 patent pending, Dave continues to solve daily production headaches. Dave takes the time to focus on the source of a problem instead of putting a band-aid on a symptom. As president and founder of PigEasy, Dave walks with you through every step of improving production and operational efficiency.
“The ideas Dave comes up with are amazing,” says Ben, referring to PigEasy’s founder, Dave Klocke, a pork producer from Templeton, Iowa. “I love the fact that PigEasy’s products work as promised. I took forward to seeing what they come up with next.”
“I think the SnoutSpout is an excellent product. It is easy to install, and once installed it stays secured. It is very durable and I appreciate the reduced profile of the spout. There is nothing which protrudes into the crate and no risk of injury to the sow.”
“I’m happy with the PigEasy feeders. You don’t have to worry about bad feed in the bottom. We’ve seen better feed intake compared to the other feeders we have used. They’re really a good deal.”
“Tagging with the ID Cart is way easier than tagging by hand and about 3 times faster. We have tagged around 8400 pigs with it and it still works great.”
We love the ID cart! We’re able to have one person tagging pigs versus two and cuts tagging time in half. It’s very user friendly, easy to use product that speeds up the tagging process.
“I’ve tried others, but this breeding saddle works by far the best.”
