Featherlite Trailers named #1 livestock trailer manufacturer

CRESCO, Iowa (March 9, 2016) – Featherlite Trailers was honored as the number one manufacturer of livestock trailers for 2015 at the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers’ (NATM) annual convention recently held in Las Vegas. The award was presented by Statistical Surveys, Inc. This is the ninth consecutive year Featherlite has received this award for manufacturing the best selling livestock trailers.

Featherlite’s award was determined based on retail registrations of livestock trailers in 2015 according to Statistical Surveys data.

“We are extremely pleased to be the preferred livestock trailer choice for the farm and ranch community, and we thank Statistical Surveys for recognizing Featherlite,” Director of Sales Justin Queensland said.

Featherlite livestock trailers, which include gooseneck trailers, bumper pull trailers, combo trailers and semi livestock trailers, are sold through Featherlite’s dealer network of nearly 190 across the U.S. and Canada.
