i haul 50% hogs and 50% cattle. Hogs are easier they load better and they are easier on equipment dont tear the hell out of the floor.they move year round.only thing is during the summer you WILL have to stop every 3 hours and wet them down and winter you need to have a winter kit so they dont freeze REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Never water hogs if theyre calm! Staying moving in the heat never overcrowd....hog hauling becomes a science with time 90% of my work is hogs..they are stressy animals b patient...pay is about the same overall REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Hogs are just like any other kind of animal to load you have your good days and your bad days as weather changes so does the ease or lack of ease for loading
they pay about the same most of the time in the summer when it is really hot you need to wet the bedding before you load. never soak the bedding before loading but make the hogs rest easier while you load the rest of the trailer
