Founded in Burlington, Iowa in 1908 by Arnold Klein as Klein Manufacturing, the company was one of the nation’s leading full line outdoor feed and water equipment manufacturers. Specializing in round hog feeders, products were offered under the brands Big Husky, Pork Pro and K-Line.  As the market moved into confinement style hog production, the company began to explore opportunities to develop other product offerings. John Schulz purchased the company in 1993 and changed the name to Flint Cliffs Manufacturing and expanded its manufacturing capabilities and services.
