Best of the Barns award

Wharton, Texas (January 12, 2012) – Featherlite Trailers has won the award for “Best Livestock Trailer Design” in the 2011 Best of the Barns awards.   

The Best of the Barns awards was created last year by Ranch House Designs, an award-winning graphic and web design agency that specializes in marketing for ranchers. The awards are “a way to honor the top businesses in the livestock industry,” according to Rachel Cutrer, Ranch House Designs’ president.

“There’s so many businesses that cater to livestock, and they don’t get recognized for the things they contribute,” Cutrer explains. “So we wanted to honor these businesses and let the livestock community recognize the people that help them.” 

The awards have grown exponentially since their inception. Last year, the awards consisted of 10 categories. Now there are almost 60. Both the nominations and voting are open processes. Featherlite beat out competitors Eby, Elite, Neckover and Wilson to win this award. 

“We couldn’t be happier,” Randy Lewis, Featherlite’s National Sales Manager, said. “We’d like to thank the voters for letting us know that we’re succeeding in our goal to give customers the best livestock trailer we can possibly make.”
