"Convertible" Trailer Hauls Cargo, Cattle

Joe Jacobs, Carlinville, Ill., gets double duty out of this "convertible" flatbed trailer that can be fitted with a cattle-hauling rack.
  When not in use for hauling cattle, the rack is simply stored on the ground out of the way. When needed to haul cattle, the 8 by 30-ft. rack is winched up onto to the trailer bed. It will hold 18 to 20 head.
  To make it easier to winch the rack into place, a cylinder on the gooseneck hitch at the front of the Landoll trailer is used to lift the front end and force the back end of the trailer down to the ground.
  Hooks on the cattle rack are chained to the flatbed to hold the rack in place.
