A mobile slaughterhouse project in France for pigs, sheep and goats
21 March 2019
Improving animal welfare is the primary objective of this mobile slaughterhouse project led by Bio Normandie, "it is an increasingly strong demand from consumers and breeders" explains Christophe Dupeyré, project manager in the association.
Another argument put forward by Bio Normandie is the distances that breeders must travel to slaughter their animals. In Eure, for example, there is only one slaughterhouse, in Neubourg, and for a few months now, it has no longer had a chain to take care of sheep, which are sometimes now slaughtered ... Vendée! But there is no question of slaughtering animals directly on farms. The mobile slaughterhouse would be installed as close as possible to the production sites, with a touring system and a passage every fortnight, which requires optimal forecast management of their slaughter schedule for farmers.
