“Working with McLanahan has been great. They don’t just come in and sell you a piece of equipment. They’re here to help us figure out what we need, how to maximize our budgets and then support as we get the system up and running. They’re part of our team."
- Rich Voss, Owner, Stevens Creek Quarry
“Coal is vital to the future of this country, and it’s burning cleaner than ever. It burns about 90 percent cleaner than it did 30 years ago, which I don’t think people understand. The price of coal is going down, so we have to consistently work more efficiently at our site. McLanahan’s equipment helps us do that.”
- Sonnie Baird, Armstrong Coal
“The primary crusher has been doing a real good job ever since we’ve had it in, with a very limited amount of downtime.”
“We’ve seen a number of benefits since implementing the new system. We now recycle up to 95 percent of the sand, reducing the need for new sand. We’re also seeing much less wear and tear on our equipment.”
- Martin Vanderstappen, Owner, Dutch Made Holsteins
“With McLanahan’s help, we are continually improving how the system works, making it a better machine, more refined.”
“The first breaker has been in since 2009, the other since 2010, and McLanahan has only been in one time - and I mean that as a compliment. In more than four years, we’ve not had any service issues. As one of my foremen says, ‘They’re sweet.’ So that’s pretty good.”
- Mike Durbin, Black Panther Mining
“The success of this plant – from greenfield to construction – was due to the success of coming together as a team - not only within Delta Companies, but also our partners Continental Equipment and McLanahan,” said Martin. “The three of us worked together to overcome any issues and get the job done.”
- Mike Martin, Delta Companies
“The system is low maintenance as long as you keep an eye on it. It’s one of the reasons we’re now producing 95 pounds of milk a day.”
- Mark Faheey, Prairieland Dairy

New Solutions At World Dairy Expo
McLanahan Corporation has developed several new solutions to display at World Dairy Expo Outdoor Trade Mall 654, 655. Booth visitors can take a virtual system tour of the Nutrient Separation System, which turns manure into clean, reusable water, while segregating nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and manure fibers. Producers can also see the McLanahan Filter Press, which produces dry manure in a drip-free cake, as well as clean, reusable process water. Stop by to see these and other new safer, simpler and smarter McLanahan systems.
Nutrient Separation System Helps Dairy Producers Meet Environmental Regulations
Engineered to be a safer, simpler and smarter solution, the McLanahan Nutrient Separation System reduces the cost and liability associated with manure management. The Nutrient Separation System uses proven technologies to separate nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium from the manure stream and control odor. By separating and concentrating nutrients, this system allows field application of nutrients where and when needed. Separated clean water can then be land irrigated, re-used or even discharged into a water source.
