I'm looking to buy a livestock crate or box that will fit in the bed of a full size pickup. I've seen plenty of examples out there, but I need to know if there are any manufacturers or dealers closer to Livermore/Fort Collins Colorado than what I've found so far. I've put some links to examples of what I'm looking for at the bottom of this post. Thanks for the help.

Just a thought, have you thought of using welded cattle panels or hog panels to build yourself a 'cage' for your truck? Both Murdoch's or Tractor Supply would have them. I have also checked around and more of those bed hauler are not local. I also checked for small livestock trailer with no luck. I am in Golden. I am thinking about getting an enclosed trailer and have the dealer put couple windows in. Good Luck.

Catahoula,

Thanks for the repsonse. I'll probably end up doing something along those lines, but I wanted to test the waters first to see if there was anything around here.

I just saw one for sale on craigslist not too long ago. I think it was the eastern CO or Pueblo one. Have you searched there? I know if you do the FtCollins one it will pick up neighboring areas. Just not sure how far south it would go.

HTH,

HTH,

Thanks for the idea. I've been checking Craigslist regularly, but only the Fort Collins and Wyoming sites. Checking Eastern CO and Pueblo is a good idea.

Thanks,
Jay
