    What's it like to drive back and forth to ranches and farms i.e. driving tractor trailers, pickup trucks with trailers, grain hauling 6 to 10 wheeled trucks? Do they pull grain trailers only or can they transport equipment too?

    All farms and ranches are different. It really depends on the size of the operation and what commodities are involved.

    it’s probably not much different from the 168 other jobs you’ve asked about...

    Yet again, I'm going to apply at coca cola after I decide to get my CDL and go to trucking school... For now it's just information I'm looking for

    Most beverage delivery and food delivery need drivers so bad they will pay for your training

    but if not , check out the community colleges .
    In my state they are not expensive . It’s under $2000 and it’s a much better training than what you get with a company , a company that will require you usually, to sign a $7000 personal loan , they get you in debt to their company store so you can’t quit and go to another trucking company when they treat you like garbage .
    Trucking companies don’t want experienced drivers. They’d rather have green novice drivers since they get paid less .

    They pull whatever needs to be moved. A lot of times they'll haul van or flatbed loads outside of harvest season.

    edit: They may haul cotton bales, hay bales, seed sacks, or even liquid fertilizer if they have a deep-drop tanker. They can also haul these new round cotton modules or even a combine's header.
