About Us

Howard Equipment began in St. Anthony, Idaho in 1964. Its founder, Merrill Howard, opened for business in an old Associated Seed warehouse with one Minneapolis-Moline tractor on the sales lot. With the help of his six sons, three daughters, and his wife Joyce, Merrill grew the tractor business from its humble beginnings to the largest White Farm Equipment dealer in the Northwest in 1977. After many years serving the agricultural community, in 1993 Merrill and Joyce decided to pursue their lifelong dream of serving missions for the LDS Church. So they auctioned off most of the tools and inventory and sold the building and property to Trost Feed and Seed next door.

Since dairy equipment and supplies are a major part of Mont's side of the business, we moved to the center of the dairies in Bingham County and built a new store in Shelley in 1994, Now with the addition of Arrowquip cattle-handling equipment, we are serving the beef growers as well. 

We no longer sell tractors and farm equipment, but we work hard to be a full-service farm supply store. Stop by our Shelley location and let one of our friendly sales staff show how we can help you
