Cattle Drivers Can Be Seriously Injured at Any Time During Their Professional Driving of Cattle to Markets

If you are a cattle driver either on the plains on a horse driving cattle to their ranches, or in truck physically driving cattle as a cattle transporter, you are always at risk of an injury while doing your job pursuing this dangerous occupation. If you are transporting cattle in a truck, there are many considerations that you need to be aware of to ensure the safety of yourself and the cattle being transported.

Cattle Driving Has to Meet the Humane Needs of the Cattle and Safety Needs of the Cattle Drivers at All Times

Cattle being driven to various markets need to be transported in the safest and most humane way possible. The welfare of the animals is of utmost importance, as is the personal safety of the cattle drivers. If cattle are being driven from a pasture to a farm or a ranch, the safety of the cattle needs to be a high priority for the cattle driver. The purpose of driving cattle is to sell, transport or buy cattle in various approved cattle markets. There the beef and dairy cattle are transported to either go to a farm, livestock auction, order-buying market, pasture, or beef processing facility. The handlers of the cattle need to keep safety in the uppermost top of their minds, or risk being seriously injured or killed during the transporting of cattle to a market for sale or processing.

Cattle Trucks Are Dangerous on the Roadways, as Cattle Are Live Loads That Need Special Care at All Times During Transport

If you are a cattle driver, you need to consider the issue of safety for the cattle, and your personal safety, at all times during the trip moving the cattle. The welfare of the cattle driver needs to consider the physical restraints and limitations to haul cattle in a truck. For example, there needs to be more than a nod to the issue of:

  • Proper ventilation for the cattle in the truck
  • Space for the cattle to move around safely in the truck during transport
  • Properly determining the loads and density of the cattle in the truck for transport
  • The road conditions of the truck route planned to transport cattle
  • The design of the trailer to transport cattle
  • The overall fitness and health of the cattle being transported
  • The weather expected along the route
  • The experience of the driver of the cattle truck
  • The proper number of truck axles for hauling cattle
Cattle Drivers Need to Be Highly Experienced at the Wheel of a Cattle Truck

That cattle driver who is unable to care properly for the cattle en route, and who is inexperienced as a cattle driver, may have an accident with other cars on the roads. Cattle drivers need to be more aware to drive a truck with live cattle on board, to care when:

  • Starting and stopping the truck to prevent shifting the cattle in transport
  • Loading or unloading cattle onto the truck
  • Turning the truck on the roads with live cattle on board
  • Know best practices regarding best handling skills to managing cattle on the way to designated markets

If you are injured from being a cattle driver, you can call us to initiate a claim based on your personal injuries related to the loss.

Typical Injuries from Being a Cattle Driver of Live Cattle Going to Markets with the Cattle

If you are a cattle driver, you many have experienced a host of personal injuries, related to your job as a cattle driver. In general, cattle are usually used to being transported, but depending on how many times the cattle have already been moved, the cattle driver may be in for a rude awakening. Cattle actually have a blind spot, and if they are approached the wrong way, they can exhibit stress and start becoming aggressive towards the cattle driver or cattle handler. A sign that the cattle are becoming angry and aggressive towards the cattle driver can include when the cattle:

  • Raise or flatten out their ears
  • Raise their tails
  • Whip around their tail
  • Raise the hair on the back of their body
  • Bare their teeth towards the handler
  • Paw at the ground with their hooves
  • Get a stiff posture towards the handler
  • Start snorting at the handler
  • Start growling at the handler

If you have had any of the cattle animals act this way towards you, it may be because the cattle were stressed during transport, and were preparing for a fight.

The common injuries received by a cattle driver can include:

  • Broken leg
  • Kicked on the ground
  • Broken arms
  • Bitten by cattle
  • Pinned down by cattle and the ground
  • Internal organs bruised by the cattle
  • Pierced by cattle horns
  • Stampeded by cattle in loading and offloading of transporter
