With over 10 years of experience as a dead animal hauler, Jack Mattern said that he is excited to begin his new business venture– Mattern Livestock Hauling. The Sonoma County native and marine corps veteran is ready to provide a vital service to the local agricultural community in Sonoma, Marin, Napa, Mendocino, Lake and other counties. 

He specializes in safe, professional, dead animal removal and disposal for both small and large animals. Some examples include bulls, steers, horses, donkeys, mules, alpacas, cows, llamas, goats, pigs, sheep, and deer.

“As an animal lover and horse owner I understand the bond between the person and animal,” Mattern said. “Not only do I offer reasonable and competitive rates, but I also strive to provide the best experience for my customers.”

Mattern taught himself to weld in January 2020 and custom-made his truck in July 2020. 

“With 10 years of experience in this field, everything on the truck I designed and built is purposeful,” Mattern said.

Now, he and his truck are available 24/7 and for emergencies. In addition to animal hauling, Mattern offers mobile welding services. 

He hopes the future of Mattern Livestock will hold growth and prosperity through his hard work. 

“I want to be able to donate to the community and expand my volunteering, especially in times of disasters.”

During the Kincade Fire, he volunteered at a horse ranch where he discovered and adopted two mini horses. He plans to join County disaster lists for live haulers and volunteer his truck and cattle trailer during times of need. 

He said that his favorite part about working in the farming community is the comradery. 

“I haven’t experienced the comradery that exists here in the agricultural industry since leaving the service and I am grateful for rediscovering it,” Mattern said.

Mattern said that he is a Farm Bureau member because he wants to protect the future of agriculture and offer a professional service to the community.
