Transporting Problem Solving

Preparing for transporting our 2 Cow/Calf Pairs met up with a snag earlier this week. We were hit with an unknowing surprise that Co-Op will not rent trailers for crossing over state borders – due to insurance issues.

It’s been a bit of a panic. Buying our first cattle trailer has been set on our list to come next – after managing to get the Moms and Babies home.  In fact – we were hoping to wait until next spring.

Borrowing a trailer seems to be a very lean possibility for anyone. We’re told most people prefer not to loan – or even rent out – their trailers because of insurance policy restrictions.

Contacting livestock transport contractors – out of the question. Unless you’re moving high numbers of cattle – it’s not even worth the expense.

Here’s how we fixed our dilemma.

We decided to take our Financial Integrity to Maryville, TN !!

Ohhhh, yyyyeaaah.  The ladies will be ridin’ home in a clean bedroom on wheels.  Ha!

We have mats for the floor – already.  They should be pretty cozy!
