What is the going rate for shipping cattle? For example, 5 hd from west coast to TX.

Still trying to get back to even.
Probably be better ahead to sell them and buy new at the other end.

Part loads get real expensive.

However - if you do a search on the internet there are a ton of haulers you can call for pricing

Local yellow pages works if you live in an ag area

I'll do it for $2.00 a loaded mile.

Just for information: Is this quote for one head, the mentioned "five head", or a potload?

That is for the five head.bucket calves or rodeo bulls I don't care.I would rather haul PBR bulls than alot of the cattle that have never been worked.

hauling here is $3 a loaded mile.

Then he had better hire Eat Beef while he still can. Diesal will likely be cheaper now than it will a week from now or two weeks from now.

I'm sure they load and ride well, but it's going to burn some fuel pulling those big boys.
