Livestock Trailers for small farmer
Any suggestions for hauling three steers (2 yr old Angus-cross), to the processor in a 12' stock trailer? The floors are 10" planking with 1/4-1/2" spacing between.
I read in a farm mag that a cattle panel stapled to the floor minimizes animal slipage during travel. The distance is 7 miles and nearly flat roads. Would you advise cattle matting instead? Years ago, in truck hauling, an inside the truck gate reduced the space, so the cattle remained upright. Would you advise this for the trailer? Thanks.
