Livestock Trailers

Livestock Trailers

Bateson Livestock Trailers have been in production for over 70 years, during which time they have developed continuously to keep abreast of ever-changing legislation regarding motor vehicles and the transport of animals.

We have kept the trailers as simple and light as possible without sacrificing strength to cope with the harsh environment in which they may operate.

All standard models of our livestock trailers have a hot-dipped galvanised chassis and are panelled with 2 mm toughened alloy sides and a heat-reflecting, plastic-coated galvanised steel roof. Two rows of recessed vent channels are fitted with punched holes, allowing permanent ventilation, minimising water ingress, and eliminating the possibility of trapping animals.

The floor is an 18 mm Phenol-coated panel with an aluminium tread plate. All trailers up to 3500 kg are fitted with independent suspension axles and auto-reversing brakes. Full road lights, locking hitch and spare wheel are all standard.

As livestock trailer manufacturers, our 90 LT and 100 LT models are designed for use with tractors and have leaf spring suspension and hydraulic brakes. A cross-division gate is standard in these trailers and optional in the other models. The maximum permitted pen lengths are 12′ for cattle, 10′ for pigs and sheep, and 8′ for calves.

Models 30 LT to 60 LT also offer a fold-down front section to improve ventilation and reduce wind resistance.

Some models are available with increased headroom and can be fitted with a timber ramp, breast bars, a centre division, and rubber floor mats to allow conversion to horse livestock trailers for the occasional transportation of horses.

Simple lift-out decks are available for models 30 LT to 48 LT. Fully folding aluminium sheep decks are available in the new Eurostock 326 and 336 models, which also have aerodynamic fronts, an internal bulkhead, and hinge-down front vents as standard. These are possibly the most distinctive and efficient livestock trailers available.
