Dawson Engineering was started by Wayne Johnson in 1974. Wayne established this business to provide quality products and services for local livestock producers.  The business was originally focused on manufacturing custom parts like crates, gates, stalls, panels, etc.  Over the decades the business transitioned to specializing in remodeling and repair of existing hog barns. In 2019 Dawson Engineering transitioned to new ownership and is now operated by Wayne’s daughter and son-in-law – Jody & Randy Moseng as Livestock Systems of Dawson. Just as in the past, Livestock Systems of Dawson continues to provide the new or refurbished materials you need to make your swine operation run smoothly and efficiently without spending all of the barn profits!
