What are Livestock Trailer Tarps?
Livestock trailer tarps, also known as stock trailer tarps, are designed for covering trailers that transport animals.
Whatever livestock farmers need to transport, it is essential to protect them from sun, wind, rain, and cold, depending on prevailing weather conditions.
This means that stock trailer tarps must be strong, waterproof, and made to withstand the elements and extreme wear and tear.
Various designs are available; for example, you might only want a trailer tarp cover, or you might want to add a tail flap or even drop walls or side curtains for added protection.
Legal Issues That Affect Livestock Trailers & Tarps
There are lots of regulations that govern both the securement and transportation of cargo in the U.S.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, for example, has stringent cargo securement rules.
The USDA also has Animal Welfare Act and Animal Welfare Regulations that cover, amongst other things, the safe and humane transportation of animals.
It doesn’t cover details like what livestock trailers or specific tarps may be used.
However, it does govern the care, handling, and treatment of all animals being transported, including feeding, watering, ventilation, and shelter from extreme temperature and weather conditions.
At Trison Tarps, we know that livestock trailers come in different formats in terms of size and style.
This is why we don’t ship out livestock trailer tarps but rather custom-build them to fit the many trailer variations businesses use.
Your choice of trailer will depend largely on the type and quantity of livestock you move, as well as the tow vehicles you use, as well as the distances you travel.
Smaller bumper-pull stock trailers are best for SUVs because you just hitch them up to your towing truck.
Gooseneck stock trailers are what you will need for hauling larger numbers of animals with bigger towing vehicles.
Trison Tarps caters for all trailer brands including, in alphabetical order:
- Ranch King
We also make stock trailer tarps for custom-made and homemade trailers designed for hauling animals from cattle and sheep to ponies.

Strength and Durability
The type of material and thread used to manufacture any livestock tarps determines, to a large extent, its strength and durability.
Ultimately, you want a trailer tarp cover that won’t rot or attract mildew.
You also want the stitching to hold up against deterioration from sunlight and UV radiation.
Trison Tarps makes livestock trailer tarps from 16-18 oz. vinyl-coated fabric that is 100% waterproof.
It is strong and incredibly durable and will keep all livestock, including cattle, sheep, goats, and ponies, protected from wind, rain, ice, and snow.
We heat-seal seams and use wear-resistant hardware that you can depend on.
Color is a personal choice, though when transporting livestock it’s wise to consider that dark colors absorb more heat.
Dark colors also show less dirt or tell-tale signs of tarp repairs.
Trison Tarps offers white, tan, grey, and black tarps – take your pick.
When we install livestock tarps, we use 1/4” nylon rope.
As a no-cost extra, we will dispose of your old tarp too.
