About South Country Livestock Equipment

At South Country, our roots go three generations deep. In 1976, Hans Santrau started the company as Ziehl Ventilating Equipment Ltd. But when Klaus Santrau (Hans’ son) took over in the mid 80's, he renamed it South Country Livestock Equipment and moved beyond ventilation to holistic barn solutions. Today, Ryan Santrau continues the legacy, offering the same quality of service we always have.

With over 40 years experience in industry, we’ve worked with thousands of farmers to help them build a better barn - a barn that will last as long as they’re in business. We’re committed to leveraging our experience in order to help every hog and poultry farmer who walks into SCLE.

We also know that farmers doesn’t work just 9 - 5, and so, we’re proud to offer near 24-7 support for those times when you’re in a pinch and need a part, or need help troubleshooting an issue.
