Practical EU Animal Transport Guides for cattle, sheep, horses, pigs and poultry now available

Thursday, 07 September 2017

These Guides provide practical advice to professionals to ensure that the animals they transport remain in good welfare

Respecting the welfare of animals during transport is in the interest of all operators involved.

The whole sector can be proud of respecting societal concerns. On the other hand, neglecting animals may lead to serious economic losses, penalties and administrative sanctions.
