Steven Knight sits firmly behind the wheel of a DAF 106 XF Super Space Cab with a Pezzaioli livestock trailer.

This haulier – who hails from across the waters in the UK – is employed by Walter Day and Sons Livestock Transport, which has been trading since 1936, respectively.

Knight attended Riseholme College in Lincolnshire, for two years before working on a dairy, beef and arable enterprise for seven years; he later followed in his family’s footsteps by entering the haulage industry.

“Livestock haulage has in my family for two generations – I am carrying on the tradition with pride,” he told Catherina Cunnane – That’s Farming.

“My grandad was a haulier and my father works for the same company as me. My uncle used to drive them, and my cousin drives for Buxtons from Essex.”

“The lorry I drive is owned by Andrew and Lisa Day. I usually carry pigs but have cattle on odd occasions; the trailer is suitable for three decks of sheep or pigs or two decks of cattle," he concluded.
