Transport end stabling
Spoor Cattle BV entrusts the transport of livestock to a variety of accredited transport companies. This guarantees a high level of flexibility. There are vehicles for short and long-haul distances which, needless to say, comply with all European Directives on the transport of livestock (e.g. automatic drinking system and mechanical ventilation). This ensures both the welfare and quality of the animals. For small-scale and special transports, we make use of our own jeep with trailer.
All transport is carried out under the supervision of the veterinarian authorities. The transport companies Spoor Cattle BV works with possess the quality certification in livestock transport (KVC). Their staff are specially trained and instructed to load, transport and unload animals in the correct way.
A calf has different stabling and feeding requirements than a pregnant heifer. A range of accredited export facilities and/or quarantine sheds are used for the stabling.
Optimal feed and resting time in an optimal environment must ensure that the journey goes as smoothly and comfortably as possible. Prior to long-distance travel, extra attention is given to feeding to ensure optimal transportation of the animals.
