Wondering if anyone has pictures of how you organize, setup and pack a standard stock trailer? Not a show or combo model, but a normal, haul the pairs to pasture type trailer. Looking and buying a 24ft and pre planning some ideas to cease the need to haul 2 trailers with calves and gear.

We show everything from calves to 3yo herd bulls

if you are on gravel roads a lot, have 2 spares and a drive over "jack" so you don't need to use a jack. have a good lug nut wrench


trailer dedicated cattle "tools", a plug in cooler, a "kit" you can grab from barn while also watching expiration dates. plenty of needles, the usual.

Have a charging unit in the trailer somewhere-or the truck And among things get a heavy duty battery powered impact wrench with the right sockets for your truck and the trailer  O0

Inside lights or one you can clip on. Makes loading in the dark much easier. Trying to push cattle into a dark trailer is no fun.

Before we upgraded to our sundowner we used out stock trailer that we used to haul momma cows and stuff like that. We outfitted it to haul panels on the outside of the trailer and can cage. Built a platform to hold our generator up above the younger if we were going somewhere that needed one we rarely showed out of pens usually always off the trailer so when we got to the show never needed to unload the generator. Wish I had a picture of it. Then built a platform in the trailer that went above the cattle that we kept feed and hay. And then show box always just was last thing on. But just think of ways to store stuff. And especially is just using a steel trailer a welder is your best friend. Make it where it’s removable though.
