Abstract

(This is the third in a series of articles spotlighting Iowa's dominant position in the production of onsite veterinary equipment.)

Bowie Manufacturing was founded in 1961 by M.C. Bowie, D.V.M. (ISU '46) who had realized the lack of products addressing the mobility needs of veterinary practitioners. Since its inception, the company has been located in Lake City, IA. The business was purchased by its current owner, M.E. Peterson, in 1977. Originally, Bowie produced only chassis-mounted mobile veterinary bodies. In 1970, however, the company added insert bodies to its product line.
