Do you know every road in the country? Have you world-class reversing skills?

Catherina pinpoints ten ways that you can tell you’re a livestock haulier!

  1. You know every back road and unmapped areas in the country.

You have travelled some ground in your time, so I guess that explains why you’re better than any GPS!

  1. Your reversing skills are world-class.

A champion of the road!

  1. You’re loyal to one particular truck brand.

Sure once you have understood one’s dedication to a particular cattle breed or football team, you’ll get your head around that one.

  1. You’ve mastered the one-finger salute!

Now that’s a skill in itself!

  1. You ‘flash the lights’ whenever you meet your fellow hauliers!

A red carpet welcome for each other!

  1. You’re best known for your wheels!

The King/Queen of the road!

  1. Coffee keeps you on the alert!

Coffee or an energy drink quenches the thirst!

  1. You’re an avid lover of a fry-up!

The nation’s favourite breakfast… sure you couldn’t go wrong!

  1. You wear a pair of quirky dealer/ chelsea boots!

You really look the part!

  1. Your stockmanship skills are on point!

You know how to handle the livestock and your machine!
