You must have a good costumer for 2.60, like the other guy most want to pay 2.00 to 2.25. And they are getting them hauled I guess.

the best I have been quoted has been 2.25 and hasnt changed from 1.80 fuel to 2.70 fuel. I think my time is worth a little more than that so I wont go east.

I HAVE HEARD THAT NORTH CAROLINA, SOUTH CAROLINA, AND GEORGIA  ONLY GET $2.40 BECAUSE OF ALL THE TRUCKS THAT COME OUT OF FPL  AND OTHER BUTCHER PLANTS IN THE AREA.  ASK PIEDMONT LIVESTOCK WHEN THEY CALL WHERE IS THOSE $2.40 TRUCKS.   ASK THESE GUYS THAT HAUL TO THESE PLANTS WHY THEY WANT TO HURT EVERYONE ELSE THAT DOESN'T HAUL INTO THEM.

 Look on the truck board, with all the trucks sitting the rates won't be going up, fuel keeps dropping.

Fuel sure isnt dropping. Its went up between .20-.30 cents in the last two weeks. As far as the rates go... until the 3-4 companies that haul out of Va. quit seeing how cheep they will haul for they wont go up, I don't have to name names...they use this site and know who they are! This aint drop and hook freighthauling so I dont know why so many trucks want to charge like it is. Last quote I got for a load out of Va. was 2.60 and I told them I wont work for fuel.

Two phone calls this morning and one load pays $2.60 and the other one wouldnt even quote me a rate. So if your getting $2.80 you better not let those rate cutters know. Sad state of affairs when we are looking at $3 fuel!

2.80 to 3.00 on 49000, not for neg. thats bouncing 4-600 miles ,them cattlebuyers got it and reliability gets you more loads, keep those snake canadians out and then you'll see better rates, they book @ 2.25 - 2.50 just to get close to that boarder, then bounce the last 900

The canadians can't inhaul in the states it is illegal. They can only load back to canada.

They are allowed one reload in the states on their way back to the border. It's amazing how people post on here when they don't know what they"re talking about.

From what I have seen its not the Canadians that are keeping the rates low in Virginia or anywhere else. Its companies from the good old US of A. I get between $2.90-$3.10 a mile for long haul right now and I have some trucks trying to take the hauls offering to haul for $2.60-$2.80. I could load them for my money but greed makes them want it all for less... pathetic! This business was alot better off when it was cowboys and farmers driving trucks instead of a bunch of freighthaulers that dont have a clue and will cut rates and stab others in the back. Just sayin'! signed, Bobby West, owner West Cattle Co. and proud of it!

Very well put Bobby. We have the same problem going on here around Wy. Co. and Ne. so its just not out there. We seem to have a lot of people that was hauling cattle and went belly up doing that but now they are brokering cattle loads and doing them for nothing. When will they learn. Thanks for listening just had to vent. Justin Elliott

Holy Moly I only give average service and i got 3.20 mile out of the east but bobby west with excellent service gets 2.90. Maybe who you are is not the key to rates but supply and demand. Just a thought. Thank you

Since people from ohio want the good rate because they do good job, i really wonder if someone gave them 2.70 a mile and payed them in "10 days" I wonder if they would haul it or they would stand on principle and pass because they were better than hauling cheap freight. I know for a fact that that they will haul anything toward home cheap because they get the big money from home but dont care what they haul the other way. The "Big" companies he despises haul for a 2.60 a mile rate  that he cant stand on all loads with about a 20 percent deadhead.  I guess that is why deregulation was a good thing because people that want to work can still have a job. NEVER blame somebody else for your own ability to make a business work, IT IS YOUR OWN FAULT!!!!!

Mr. TN, I have hauled one load in 3 weeks and turned down others because they were less than 2.90. My owner operator is loading for $3.40 in the morning. He sat for almost three weeks and wouldnt haul for less. So, yes we do stand on principle. Thank you, Bobby West

If you guys out of the east that are complaining about the trucks hauling into the kill plants would haul them, you wouldn't have the cheap trucks out there. The kill plants are paying around 2.60 to 2.80 a mile, so if you ad that with a load paying 2.50 to 2. 70 a mile, without much dead head, that is over 5.00 a mile. But you guys are "Too Proud" to haul the loads back to the kill plants for that. I see truck after truck bouncing back to the east. Someone has to haul those loads.

Wow, someone else with NO business sense. Buy a calculator, do the math. If it"s working for them, they obviously did the math. Don"t get angry at them because it works for them and not you. It"s called free enterprize!! Find something that works for you. If your trucks do as good a job as you say they do, they shouldn"t be sitting for three weeks. Sometimes we need to look at ourselves and what we can change about ourselves instead of trying to change others.

I did do the math and I can tell you this. You can not load out for $2.50-2.70 a mile and bounce back every week. We do try to load back...when we can get the loads. As for no business sense, I have been in business for over 13 years hauling cattle so I do know what I am talking about. I also have a small cattle & horse ranch, and do some order buying. I think I know how to use a pencil. I load back when the loads are there but unfortunately they arent there on a regular basis. We send feeder loads out over ten months out of the year. There are just not enough loads coming back so your rate HAS to be enough to pencil out at the end of the year...period! If we would all work together on this instead of getting gready this post wouldnt even be necessary. Thank you, Bobby West

If you get $2.50 a mile for every mile, that is still $2.50 a mile not $5.00. This way if thinking is why the rates are so low

You are right we all have dead head miles but 3.00 a loaded mile when you are only loaded one way is 1.50 a mile both ways.  I will take 2.50 a mile both ways any day over 1.50 there are a lot less dead head miles when you are loaded both ways.  To the guy wanting to know what packing house pays 2.50 to 2.80, that would be JBS. So I guess I am not just hearing myself talk!!!

Last fall I was hauling for 3.20 a mile, but right now when a guy has to beg for a decent load the rate is between 2.80 and 3.00.  Every once in a while a guy might get lucky and haul for 3.30 a loaded mile, and that's loaded one way.  I know of several trucking companies that are hauling for 2.25 but they are loaded both ways, but granted it doesn't happen all in the same day.

Huh,

     I   guess tires oil and all the expenses just get tossed to the side when some who are going for less than 2:90-3:00 any fricken where.Perhaps the shippers reading all these posts are getting a kick out of use being stirred up and hounding each other . Guys stay at least 3:00 p/loaded mile even if it's a return trip towards home, we still have deadhead miles no matter what wether it's 80 or 480. WEAR AND TEAR FELLAS, not to mention the weight is always the dance around factor...
