Petmar livestock handling equipment create innovative, long-lasting, and simple-to-use equipment to help livestock farmers with their daily obstacles with grafting, weighing, loading, and feeding. These tools were created with one goal in mind: to reduce some of the stress associated with raising livestock. Quick, easy, and sustainable!

Petmar’s origin

Peet Jacobs, a farm boy from the Free State’s Edenburg district, created cost-effective livestock equipment for farmers as a solution to the problem of a lack of farm workers in the 1990s.

These goods were produced under the brand name PETMAR, which is an anagram of his and his only son’s baptismal names’ first three letters.

“Petmar is not just a brand, but a legacy,” claims Petri Jacobs.
