Date:11/16/2009

ARMSTRONG, Iowa, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Art's Way Manufacturing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARTW), announces its wholly owned subsidiary, Art's Way Scientific, Inc. - Buildings For Science - will be providing 6 modular swine facilities for breeding, gestation, farrowing, nursery and finisher operations.

The contract is valued at approximately $1.3 million.

Dan Palmer, General Manager of Art's Way Scientific said, "We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract. With swine, specific attention needs to be paid to the management of effective environmental conditions, cleanable surfaces ventilation, animal pens, manure management and the quantity and quality of food and water. Our unique and modular designs address all of these key issues."

Ward McConnell, Jr., Executive Chairman of the Board, said, "I am gratified Art's Way Scientific's design, manufacturing, pricing and customer service was evaluated and chosen to construct this innovative research center.
