Association between driving actions and animal stress in mobile slaughter of cattle

Hultgren, Jan; Berg, Lotta; Algers, Bo

Abstract

Rough handling at slaughter can affect cattle welfare negatively. Aiming to study associations of stress-related animal behaviours and time intervals for driving, stunning and sticking with stockperson driving actions, we made initial observations at a commercial mobile slaughter plant on 11 days at nine Swedish cattle farms.
