Metal Fabrication Plant: offers quality products manufactured at TFC's plant in LaVergne, including gates, hay and bunk feeders, bale-moving equipment, corral panels and other items. The product line, which boasts some of the heaviest live stock equipment on the market is sold by member Co-ops.
Ag Equipment USA: sells farm implements and large spray and fertilizer equipment. Always known for the quality equipment it offers, Ag Equipment USA offers domestic items as well as products imported from several countries. The group is involved in precision farming and sells products in 28 states
Best Quality: The Farm Hardware Department has initiated a program called "BEST QUALITY" to help provide our customers with the information to make the right decision when purchasing products to use on the farm. With the price of fencing products and the amount of labor required to erect a fence, why would anyone use conventional fencing products. For just a little more, a fence could be constructed that would last as much as twice as long.
Herdsman Brand: In conjunction with Heritage Trading Company, a buying group formed under the Universal Cooperatives umbrella to collectively source products at quantities large enough to keep both prices and quality in check, the Hardware Department launched the Herdsman Brand of wire and fencing products in 2010.
