Germany's Friedrich Loeffler Institute issues technical requirements for long-distance transport of unweaned calves
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.
