To get ahead these days, you have to run hard. Livestock haulers, like young gun Darwin Hershberger of Greeley, Colorado, seen here streaking across the expansive Wyoming landscape in a truck owned by Jacob Weber, are famous for “doing what it takes” to get their live load delivered safe and in a timely manner. “I grew up on a dairy farm and been around animals all my life. I tried hauling a few other things, but always ended up back with livestock. The pig deal went bad so now I just stick to hauling cows. The feeling you get when you watch the last cow walk off your trailer after doing a slingshot halfway across the country and knowing how hard it was is one hell of an adrenalin rush! It feels good to know that you did your job – and you did it right.” There is no shortcut to success in the trucking business – working hard, working smart and having passion and persistence are the keys to a fruitful future in driving and/or owning a truck!
