Priefert Manufacturing: A Pioneering Legacy in Ranch & Rodeo

Written by NRS Influencer Barrett Houser

It's one of the most iconic brands in the Western industry and the most recognizable element of any National Finals Rodeo (NFR). If you have ever been to or watched an NFR performance, you will undoubtedly notice the Gold Chutes, a staple of the Greatest Performance on Dirt. This is Priefert Manufacturing.

Priefert was founded by Marvin Priefert in 1964. What started as a single headgate has turned into hundreds of pieces of equipment built to help stockmen handle their animals with the utmost care and ensure the safety of all involved.

Team ropers like myself have relied on Priefert's innovations to help us perform at our best and care for our animals with world-class style. I have found their products aesthetically pleasing, dependable and durable enough to last for generations.

Some of the most well-known and adored products by many horsemen are the Premier Panels and Premier Round Pens due to their super sturdy design with Quadraform tubing and chain connectors. The saying around these panels is "Tough Enough for Cattle, Safe Enough for Horses."

I once leased a property with an old Priefert team roping chute that had just a touch of rust from many years of sitting unused. There was no doubt in my mind that with a light power wash and some grease, this chute would run cattle through it with no problem.

This is what you can expect from a Priefert product. Priefert Manufacturing truly is the best at any size, style or price, which is why so many professionals rely on Priefert to make a living.
