Livestock Trailer Terminology

If you are in the market for a trailer to haul your livestock, like horses and cattle, you have several options available to you. Familiarize yourself with the following terms and definitions to better understand the various types of livestock utility trailers.

  • Air Gaps - Some horse and cattle trailers have air gaps within the aluminum walls to allow for proper air circulation. A trailer with air gaps, as opposed to an entirely enclosed trailer, is a smart choice in warmer climates.
  • Gooseneck - A gooseneck trailer is one that attaches to a coupling that is located in the bed of the truck, rather than the vehicle's frame near the rear bumper. Gooseneck trailers can allow you to haul much more cargo, so they are a smart choice for hauling large numbers of living animals. These are typically enclosed trailers.
  • Slider - A slider is a utility door located in the rear of a trailer. It can be opened in lieu of the main gate in order for one animal or person to exit. These are primarily on larger goosenecks trailers with ramps.
  • Breast Bar - The breast bar is an aluminum or steel bar within the cargo space that keeps a horse or cow safely within the traveling stall area. The breast or butt bar also keep the animal from attempting to move around.
  • Bridle Hooks - Bridle hooks are often included along the walls of an equine trailer so that a horse can be safely secured while the other horses are being loaded into the trailer.

    Farmers, breeders, and trainers who have horses want to make sure that they purchase reliable trailers that are safe for transporting their livestock over short and long distances. Horse trailer supply dealers often have a variety of aluminum and steel products that can help transport your horses, feed, and tackle safely. There are different types of trailers that dealerships sell. Goose-neck trailers, for instance have long frames that attach to trucks. The goose-neck design makes it possible for trailers to carry heavy loads. Many of these companies also sell trailers that are effective living quarters. These are usually a little larger to give horses enough room to move around during long trips. They also contain storage for feed, saddles, mats, and other accessories that you might need. It is important for breeders and ranchers to buy from dealerships that supply slanted ramps as well as trailers. The slanted ramps allow the horses to enter and exit the trailers easily and without getting hurt. When choosing the products that you will buy from the dealers, determine whether the trailers have steel hinges that can withstand heavy weights. You should also look for aluminum bumpers that can protect the horses from any minor collisions that might occur on the road. You can learn more about the discount distributors operating in your area by using a popular search engine to locate their web pages. You can also read customer reviews to determine which companies have been reliable for other breeders. These may also provide some additional insight into which one you should choose.
