Stock Car Question

Steve Vallee

Dear Group...

While looking through the June, 1954 issue of Railroad Magazine, on page 61, I found this Q&A that I wanted to share with the Group:

Q)...Approximately how many farm animals can be loaded into one stock car?

A)...That depends upon the size of the car and the kind of animal. Generally a standard 36-foot stock car holds 18 to 25 horses, 25 to 30 medium-weight beef cattle, 60 to 65 market weight hogs, or 110 to 120 fat lambs per deck of the car.

Hope this information is helpful to the Group.
