Best Livestock Trailers Features & Benefits

Why Having the Best Livestock Trailers to Move Your Prized Animals Is Important

Unlike the old cattle drives of yesteryear where cowboys would spend months on the trail getting to the nearest railhead for transport to market, the safest and easiest way in today’s economy is to use professionally built custom stock trailers. For the purpose of transporting various kinds and sizes of livestock on or off the road, a well-designed, and solidly built steel or aluminum trailer is the only way to go.

There are two distinct types of custom stock trailers that are widely used; the standard bumper-pull type and the gooseneck. While much smaller than their gooseneck counterparts, bumper pull livestock trailers still come in various sizes and can be custom fitted to cater for both large and small livestock. Reaching 36’ long and 7’ wide, the gooseneck custom stock trailers provides ample room to transport more livestock to cut down on trips.

Why Might You Need a Custom Stock Trailer?

While the distances involved in transporting livestock to market are nothing compared to those of the old cattle drives that had to cover 1,000 miles (the Chisholm Trail from Texas to Kansas), safe transportation is still vital. Using trains is no longer a cost-effective option and you will be hard-pressed to find a rail service that still has cattle boxes in use. That really only leaves you with two options; pay someone to transport your livestock for you or invest in your own transport. By owning your own custom stock trailers, you are then free to take your prize-winning bulls to various shows on your own time without having to rely on others. It also removes the need to pay for expensive hauling companies.
