The company has a long and rich history(read about our history) and a bright future under the ownership of David and Ricky Rater.  Father and son acquired the company in January, 2013.

We are thankful for the continued support of our outstanding employees.  The company has prospered because of the wonderful people who build Pearson products.  The products you see are a direct reflection on the work ethic and pride that comes from the Nebraska Sandhills.

The Raters' vision is for Pearson Livestock Equipment to remain a family-oriented company that produces quality livestock handling equipment.  The company will continue its tradition of quality while addressing the challenges of the market and the needs of customers.  Plans include increasing production, additional staffing and a continuous focus on innovation.
