How to spot a cattle buyer on the road

Whenever you ever see a truck coming against you on the road, you probably wonder who is behind the wheel.

And even if you don’t, there are a few simple ways to identify whether it is a cattle dealer or not.

Here is a list of the distinguishing features to look out for:

  1. The cattle truck itself is probably a give-away;
  2. A 191 truck will already have around 300,000km clocked up;
  3. Look out for the dent in their leg, that is the imprint from the cheque book in their pocket;
  4. They are on the road when everyone is going to bed, just to ensure they are the first to the sale;
  5. The ‘dealer jacket’ can be seen behind the wheel;
  6. Their dining room is wherever or whatever can be found on the way, no matter if parking allows for a truck or not;
  7. Their hands are covered in lot numbers from previous sales;
  8. A bit of tyre is left on every high road and by-road in the country, something to remember them by.
