Coburn

In 1925, Orrie Coburn developed the Coburn One-Wire Electric Fencer, America’s first mass-produced electric fence, to help ranchers control livestock herds on large tracts of land in the expanding western United States. Around the same time, he realized that America’s extensive rail system would allow him to sell top-quality Wisconsin dairy calves from his award-winning dairy herd as bovine ambassadors to help improve dairy farming throughout the United States. These two innovative and well-executed ideas were the beginning of The Coburn Company, Inc.

Orrie’s great-grandsons carry on his tradition of innovation and execution to this day. He would be proud of their unwavering dedication to providing the best service and products possible to their customers. Over four generations, this dedication has made Coburn one of the world’s most widely known and respected manufacturers and distributors of top-quality farm supplies, livestock supplies and milking equipment, with products available in every state as well as over 60 countries.
