Air Date: January 2012
Location: Red Deer, Alberta, Canada
On an average day in the province of Alberta there are approximately 40,000 head of livestock being transported. As a result, highway accidents can and do happen regularly. So the Red Deer County Agricultural services division decided to put together a 22 foot long trailer that could act as a source for tools and supplies when animals escape or are injured in a highway cattle liner wreck. The unit contains everything from portable panels to corral escaped animals to power tools to aid in the freeing of trapped livestock. A portable generator is also available to re charge battery tools and provide lighting.
Cost of the trailer and the contents was around $40,000.
