Hog Operation Testimonial
The best part I like about your fence is the openness in the building. I can see down the whole length of the barn! My sows can see the boars from any pen in the barn. If I get a sow that is cycling, I can tell much faster which one is in heat, and I think I get a stronger heat in the sow because she can see the boars. The air flow is better in the building and the inside of the barn is brighter as well. This is definitely one of the best things I've ever bought for my hog operation. I like the fact that I have reduced the weight on top of the pit. The old cement fence was heavy.
Also, the adjustment of cutting off your fence combined with the adjustment on the hinges made the fence fit no matter if the other walls in the pen were true or not.
With some talk of the hog industry moving away from gestation stalls and into large pens for the sows, you may have the solution to the fencing. Also, would you consider making a finisher version of you fence? Or maybe even smaller fences for nursery/grower pigs. I can see where I would use your fence on my farm in all applications as my steel fence wears out. Only thing I'm worried about is my buildings wearing out and falling down around your fence.
Your product was impressive from the moment I picked it up and held it. It was your customer service and easy down to earth, honest manner that let me know I could trust you and work with you. I really am very happy with the way the fence has worked in my building."

Hay Bale Feeder Testimonial
"I am very pleased with your horse hay bale feeder. We have fed three bales now and I've noticed very little waste. Another good part is the flexibility of this feeder. If it gets caught on the skid loader tines when you back out-it just flexes and springs back. I can also move it (when empty) by myself if I need to."

"The most frequent comment I hear is "MY HIRED HELP CAN'T EVEN WRECK THEM." They don't rust, kink, or bend. I know they will outlast a steel gate."

Being associated with cattle and horses my entire life and has always resulted in hours of fence repair and then more fence repair we decided with our new arena things needed to be different. TJ's fencing was the pot at the end of our rainbow and the end to our time-consuming research of trying to find that "final" install. We visited Travis's fathers (Lloyd) farm unannounced(on a Sunday) to take a look at what could have been just another quest in trying to find our "final" solution. What we found was a highly developed solution incorporating a solid fiberglass fencing rail and fiberglass fence post. To stand and watch numerous yearling colts pushing, kicking in Lloyd's round pen and what seemed to be a fence that provided less stress and a high safety factory on such a group of outstanding young colts, made our decision pretty easy. Years of frustration and repairs had finally come to an end and TJs has proved, to date, to be our"final" solution. With several emails and calls between Travis and his support team at TJ fencing made the project come to life in a matter of days. Design concepts were reviewed and being an engineer also resulted in numerous questions (sorry about that). As with any new concept, skepticism comes into play, not in this instance. My questions and more questions were answered, and our design was updated to our final design and installation. The install was accomplished by my wife, Janan and I in a weeks' time. The parts list was complete and to the "T" of what was required for our pasture, paddock,and arena fencing. It came together so quick we were both were amazed we could stand back and go "now that was easy". To date, the fence has proven to fulfill our needs and our final quest of a sustainable, environmentally safe, animal safe and very attractive addition to our home.

Had our free stalls put in about a year and half ago. I'm very satisfied with the flexibility and durability of the product. The biggest thing I noticed right away was the light weight and ease of installation vs. the heaviness of the prior stalls. I'm expecting more longevity from these free stalls. Very satisfied with the timely and friendly service received from TJ Fencing

"We installed our Fencing ourselves about three months ago. Installation was easy and it only took us a day and half to install. The fencing is durable. A person can crawl through fencing any wherebecause it flexes. Cows hit the fencing and really can't damage it. It is very cost effective."

"The gates are AWESOME! I'll think twice before I would ever buy a steel gate again. We built a loading pen that works great for loading fat cattle also!"

"We have been using fiberglass fencing, gates and free stalls for over 13 years and have been very impressed with the durability of all of the products. THE SERVICE FROM TJ FENCING HAS BEEN EXCELLENT AND WE PLAN TO CONTINUE USING THEIR PRODUCTS IN THE FUTURE! Ten years ago we had a tractor and spreader jump out of park and roll backwards into a fiberglass gate. It bowed the gate about 2feet. We pulled the tractor ahead and except for a few scratches there was no damage to the gate. That gate is still hanging on the same fiberglass post today and is just as good a shape as it was 13 years ago when we put it in!"

Dairy Barn Testimonials
"The fiberglass gates ARE THE ONLY GATES TO BE USED ON DAIRY FARMS. Cattle and people are extremely hard on gates. Yours really stand the test of time!"

I have Fiberglass Freestalls and my milk production has went up since we installed them.We love the Fiberglass Freestalls! I have cows standing in morning because all the Fiberglass stalls are full.
-Steve Kaiser, Little Falls, MN | Date: 7/05/2016
"The stalls are very good, I've had the stalls 8 weeks and the cows adjusted to them right away. I see a big savings on bedding since installing the stalls. I recommend anyone who is thinking about building a new freestall barn to take a look at these stalls."
-Don Buhr, Sumner, IA | Date: 11/23/2016
The cows feel less restricted in the Fiberglass Freestalls. The Fiberglass Freestalls are flexible. We really like that you can adjust the Fiberglass Freestalls to the size of the cow.
