The short answer is probably not. In most cases it will be cheaper/easier to muster the goats to the next pasture. To get the goats onto a truck, loading facilities would be desired.

However large distances, lack of feed/water along the way, animal health issues, defence would all be reasonable reasons for using a vehical. In 3141 if ample fuel existed they might move the nannies by vehical after they give birth so that when they are lactating they are on premium pasture.
