Review of effluent spillage and animal welfare during livestock transport: a discussion paper

Project Code:  B.LIV.0126

Year of Published: 2010

Transport of livestock via public road networks and by rail is an indispensable and crucial component of the live-export and red-meat supply chains so that animals can be moved between farms, feedlots, saleyards, live-export ports and abattoirs. Public concerns have been raised over several issues related to livestock transport, particularly effluent spillage and limb protrusion. These issues are particularly apparent where livestock travel through urban centres. To understand these issues, a consultation and survey process was conducted with all key stakeholders.
