Re­li­able live­stock cart­ing

Central and North Burnett Times - - FEATURE -

IF YOU re­quire a re­li­able trans­port com­pany to get your live­stock to mar­ket, H. Dowl­ing and Sons at Biggen­den can cover all your needs.

Due to the ex­pan­sion of its truck­ing busi­ness, the fleet in­cludes body trucks through to B-dou­bles.

They can cart what­ever you need, from a sin­gle beast to 120 head.

Re­gard­less of where you travel in Queens­land, you of­ten see the fa­mil­iar red and white colour scheme of Dowl­ing’s trucks.

Man­ager Ge­off Dowl­ing said pri­mary pro­duc­ers were de­pen­dent on the road trans­port sys­tem be­cause they could no longer use rail.

While the bulk of cat­tle for the Bi­gen­den sale will come from Gin Gin, Miriam Vale, Mun­dub­bera, Eidsvold, Mt Perry, Mary­bor­ough, Her­vey Bay and Gympie, the trucks travel as far as Nor­man­ton, Nebo and into north­ern New SouthWales.

Mr Dowl­ing was full of praise for the fa­cil­i­ties at the Biggen­den sa­le­yards.

“The dou­ble decker yards make un­load­ing a lot eas­ier, while the up­grad­ing of the yards makes for a big­ger vol­ume of cat­tle,” he said.

“The Whi­tak­ers are great peo­ple to work with.”
