Slide-In Livestock Container For Pickups
If you need to haul hogs, sheep, goats, or other small animals but don't want the hassle of using a gooseneck trailer, you'll like this "slide-in" livestock container that fits in the bed of a pickup between the fender wells.
The "Livestock Popper", as the company calls it, is 7 1/2 ft. long, 4 ft. wide, and 44 in. high and has a full-swing endgate on back. You can use rubber straps to secure the side support posts on the unit to stake pockets in the bed.
"It's made from aluminum so it's light and easy to handle," says Dave Anderson, Alum-Line, Inc., Cresco, Iowa. "It's really handy for taking livestock to shows. It's ridiculous to have to pull a 20-ft. long goose-neck trailer when you only have to haul seven sheep."
Models are available to fit any pickup, whether it has a full 8-ft. bed or short box, and units can be custom built on order. A center gate is available that divides the unit in two, i.e. to separate males from females. Sells for $1,000 with center gate; $950 with-out it.
The company also offers a full range of aluminum pickup toppers.
