Thousands of animals are daily transported within Europe and to third countries for slaughter, fattening and breeding. Transport conditions during these journeys vary a lot. To support the industry (e.g. farmers, drivers) to improve animal welfare, a consortium consisting of 16 partners has started to develop Guides to Good and Best Practice as a European Commission, DG Sante pilot project. The Guides will involve guidelines for cattle, horses, pigs, poultry and sheep transport, with the aim to finish by the end of 2018.
