Texas to Jersey hauler needed

I would like to purchase a cow in Texas but I need to get her to NJ. Is there a good way to get that that done efficiently? I was thinking that maybe it could be combined with others going in a similar direction. I appreciate any ideas? Thanks

Can’t imagine that there are very many headed from Texas to New Jersey.

Says its 1400 miles and some change for me. What part of Texas? I’d be interested in doing it.

.......I've used a web site .....Uship.....just list the start/finish/weight/and any time requirements. Will usually get a couple of bids fairly quick. The NJ destination may be a slow go this time of the year....????

My question is, with the usual charge of $2.50-$3/loaded mile, is this animal really that worth it? You're looking at close to $3,000 to get that animal to you (probably). What could you buy with that $3000 that's closer to you? To me, there's really no animal that's worth that kind of money to ship unless it's super, super special.
