Comfort of animals is fine, but if pulling for any distance, allowing the animals to have too much moving room is one of the most dangerous things you can do. They should not have room to turn around nor should they be able to swing their weight around. If only transporting one or only a cow calf pair, the cow should be in the front and the calf in the back if you feel they need to be separate. That is only necessary if the calf is very young so it does not get stepped on... a 16 ft trailer can easily transport 4 / 1200 lb cows and their calves. We regularly move 6 cow calf pairs in the 20 ft trailer to pastures and back.. they do not have alot of room for them to start moving around too much and their weight does not cause the trailer to sway or cause the whipping that will happen with bumper pull type trailers.
