Whether you are transporting cows, pigs, chickens, horses or other livestock it is important to understand the difference between your risks and that of generic truck insurance.
The key risks of transporting livestock includes escaped livestock, death or crippling of livestock during the transportation process or a deck collapse from incorrect loading / faulty equipment.
The insurance will than need to specify the type and level of cover to be provided. This can be general (broad) coverage or limited coverage which is limited to the specific wording of your policy. Further the policy needs to specifically address what is or is not included such as carcass removal, when the livestock coverage begins and ends and additional property coverage.
