New research from the Department of Animal Science, Aarhus University, shows that transport of cull sows to the slaughter plant in many cases involves a deterioration of the sows’ physical condition compared to before they were loaded on the truck. The results may play a part in improving animal welfare during transport and contribute to the debate about the concept of fitness for transport.
