Bull hauling is not a job for the faint of heart
by t.j. miatke
I have been around this business my whole life and driving in it for the last 8 years hauling livestock and its very true that one morning you are in Virginia loading feeder cattle and the next evening your loading feeder pigs in the west coming back.
If a guy doing what we do can average 10 to 15 hours of sleep a week then hes doing very well because there are a lot of times we are lucky to get even half that.
To do this job and do it well you have to love it and make it a way of life for you or you'll never last. the money is really good and we are given a ton of respect for what we do.
There really is no way to properly train someone on how to do this job because every load is different it handles different pulls different loads and unloads different and as a bull hauler you have to be on your "A" game all the time or you'll get you or someone else killed.
But even with all of what I've said, its the best job a guy or girl could ever have. I love what I do and I'll never do anything else.
y'all be safe out there.
