There’s only one proper way to learn trucking – the hard way – and livestock haulers are a perfect example. Their “schooling” comes from hauling impossible loads with impossible deadlines on a regular basis. Working under these conditions, they become highly-focused on what’s coming toward them, anticipating dangers, and addressing them before they even materialize (and way before they become apparent to others). That is why they can run hard yet rarely ever crash. All those dumb sheep that surround them are gonna die someday, but not while on the bullhauler’s watch!
