Animal Welfare during Transport: Technical requirements for longdistance transport of unweaned calves
Calves that still need to be fed with milk or are accustomed to milk replacer (unweaned calves) place special demands on the technical equipment of transport vehicles during long-distance transport. This animal welfare assessment provides an overview of the technical requirements for transport vehicles from an animal welfare perspective. In particular, the technical requirements for watering devices specified in Chapter VI No. 2.2 of Council Regulation (EC) No. 1/2005 (Council Regulation on Animal Welfare during Transport) are dealt with. The assessment aims at assisting the authorities of the Federal States responsible for granting permission of long-distance transport of calves in approving the means of transport.
