Livestock (mostly hogs) hauler out of Hatfield, PA.  They were an early eastern user of KWs.

i remember them back in the 60's on the PA pike- They  moved pretty fast and when  one would pass you could hear the hogs squealing and if you had the windows rolled down you could also get a strong whiff that would clear your sinuses. LOL

Thanks for the info it cleared up a couple of questions, including why I haven't seen any MoPac (Moyer Packing) trucks for a while.
