What do truck drivers do in agriculture?
Drivers with J.B. Hunt’s Ag Services can enjoy a wide variety of job types, from feed deliveries and drop and hook, to flatbed trailers and more. When it comes to driving to and from farms, there are loads of opportunities for drivers who want to impact their communities and enjoy the sights of more scenic routes.
All J.B. Hunt drivers are trained to safely transport their loads, and that is equally true for our ag truck drivers. These drivers often work with specialized equipment and pay special attention to sanitization processes and the safe transportation of their loads.
For local driver Theron, using these skills and taking care of the loads a farm has entrusted to him gives him a sense of responsibility that he takes pride in.
“It’s one of those jobs or careers that you can get into [where] you really feel like your own boss, you know? I mean it really has that kind of feel to it,” he said. “It takes training … but as far as getting into truck driving or getting into J.B. Hunt or getting into the ag field, you know, it’s a great experience. It’s a great opportunity.”

Along with the more rural deliveries, our Ag Services driving jobs are almost exclusively local driving jobs with daily home time. For Theron, the frequent home time and scenic views are what make his job great.
“I’ve seen some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets that I’ve ever seen in my entire life … and you’re able to see that and kind of appreciate it because you’re around it,” he said. “It just kind of makes you appreciate what kind of country we live in.”
Carol is a local J.B. Hunt driver who transitioned to Ag Services from being over the road. She says that the views, the wildlife and the difference in the environment have brought her some peacefulness.
“Wait until you see where we go. I mean, the road we’re going to go down, there’s buffalo. We’ve got all baby cows out at springtime, we got horses that are having babies and just being out in the country – it’s peaceful,” she said. “It’s like going camping. Except you don’t have a fishing pole.”
