As long as the same animals are using the car.

Shippers did not want their stock contaminated by soiled bedding from another stock owner. According to a clinc that Steve Sandifer presented at teh ATSFRRH&MS convention this summer, it was typical for cars to wait and reload their stock to mimimize the labor and materials used for a given shipment.


I missed this post, but am curious what contamination(s) you are referring to?
