I am no mexican, I am white and full-blood Texan. You yankees are the ones that I am talking about. You are worried about the wrong thing. Worry about your own self, not everyone else. You will be a hell of a lot better off.

AIN'T IT LEGAL TO LEAVE TRAPS OPEN IN TEXAS AND OK, LETS BE NICE AND FERTILIZE JUST THE SIDEROADS OF IA, MAYBE IT WILL FILL IN SOME OF THE DEFECTS THEY SEEM TO BE UNAWARE OF. BY THE WAY THAT ONE DUDE IS RIGHT, A NICE SHINEY RIDE LASTS AS LONG AS THE NEXT DAY USUALLY TWO AT THE MOST.

 thats true if you drive down the gravel roads at 50 mph to get them fat cattle on and drive 100 miles to sit in line. im gunna stick with the 1200 or 1400 mile hauls.  o and by the way, im from south dakota.

I agree we should all run with the traps closed.  We do our own maintenance and there is nothing worse than crawling under a trailer to grease it or change brakes with cow crap all over the underside of the trailer.  If you think manure only runs downhill your wrong, with the wind and speed we are traveling it gets all over everything.  Unless you hire someone to maintenance your trailer you can do what you want but if don't want people driving by with their windshield wipers on and spraying washer fluid all over your windshield then keep your drains closed
