2020 Ford F-250/F-350/F-450 Super Duty Towing and Payload Capacities
One of the many reasons why drivers choose the Ford F-Series trucks is because they are so strong and durable. While you can get enough power to transport a few horses or market-ready steers with the best-selling Ford F-150, sometimes we need something a little stronger to pull even heavier loads. Luckily, there are the Super Duty models: the F-250, the F-350, and the F-450.

Please note that the actual towing capacity and payload of your 2020 Ford Super Duty truck will vary due to your chosen engine, the cab size, the length of the bed, whether 2WD or 4WD is being used, the axle ratio, and if you are using conventional, gooseneck, or fifth-wheel towing methods.
We would also like to note that your trailer’s tongue weight should be 10% of the total weight of your loaded trailer (15% for fifth-wheel towing).
How Many Head of Cattle Can I Transport with the 2020 Ford Super Duty Trucks?
Since we are located in the Dairy State, it is not uncommon for us to see Ford Super Duty trucks loaded with cattle to either the local fair or to market. A fully-loaded 20-foot gooseneck-style livestock trailer will weigh about 5,000 pounds when empty and about 14,000 pounds when fully loaded with four to five head of cattle. This means you can easily get a larger trailer and transport even more livestock when you choose a model like the F-350 or F-450!
Of course, you will want to keep in mind the size and weight of your cattle. A Holstein heifer will be around 800 pounds, while a market-ready Angus steer can top the scales at more than 1,800 pounds.
