Homemade by my grandpa back in 1979. I have painted it and had a new tarp made. We also have a gooseneck brand 24x6.

I have since painted all the wheels gray. Looks damn good for being so old.

Here's ours. It's a '93 Eby aluminum 8' by 20'. We bought it used back in 05. We use it to haul our dairy cows around. I also haul steers to local slaughter houses.

My buddy that I work cows with has a Gooseneck Brand 28' x 7'6". Its a very nice trailer. If you go that big, be sure and get dual jacks. One wont hardly pick it up. And don't get the rubber floor. Its a little bit of a pain in the ass. We ended up removing all the rubber boards and spacing them out more cause they were too close together. What a chore!

A full escape door up front is the best thing since sliced bread if you use your trailer in the pasture much at all. We use the one on his trailer all the time.

To change the subject... How are prices where you are?
We sent some on Monday and are happy with prices.

Steers bringing anywhere from $1.15 - $1.33lb. Heifers a little less. I sold one 500 pounder that brought $1.23lb. Not too bad.
Were just hobby ranchers though. Only run around 225 commercial bred cows. Small scale.
