Road Trains

This is a recent email sent regarding the cattle trains at Helen Springs Station.

There are interesting statistics.

There are 17 trucks with 3 trailers and 2 decks per trailer;

Therefore there are 102 decks of cattle and there would be approximately

28 cattle per deck; This totals 2,856 head of cattle

The cattle will weigh approximately 500kg each

The sale price for cattle at Longreach is approx. 165c/kg

Each animal will therefore be sold at $825.

Total revenue from this analysis is $2,356,200

Another interesting fact:

Each trailer has 24 tyres plus a dolly with 8 tyres

The truck plus lead trailer have 12 tyres plus a dolly with 8 tyres and 10 tyres on the truck
