The Horning family knows cows.  
After three generations of dairy farming, the Horning family knows cows. But as much as the Hornings are dairymen at heart, they are innovators in mind. Relentless innovators in fact. And it is this family passion that has become the driving force and company culture of Horning Manufacturing.

Leon Sr. created his first set of kernel processing rolls for his forage harvester in 1998, in his farm shop. The rest is history. Today, Horning Manufacturing continues to innovate forage equipment and processes. They are built tough and simple. They are built to be highly effective and user friendly.

That’s a little of our story. But to us it is not our story that matters – it is yours.

We understand the critical importance of each key player in our industry: the dairy owners, the nutritionists who advise them, the custom harvesters and equipment operators who supply them, and equipment dealer who serve and support them. You are the heros of our industry. It is our passion to serve you with innovation and quality that makes your life easy, and optimizes your productivity and profitability. Today. And in the future.

Let’s roll.
