Transport of animals – time off feed requirements
Posted on Monday, 17 April 2023
A reminder of the requirements for sending in stock for processing:
Ruminants should be stood off green feed, with water provided, and an appropriate alternative feed source (e.g. hay), for a minimum of four hours but for no more than 12 hours before transport.
Records for standing-off feed
It is an industry expectation the time off feed and time off transport are recorded on the ASD documentation.
Check list for transport:
☐ Transport company booked and confirmed
☐ Only animals fit for transport are selected. If unsure, is a veterinary certificate required?
☐ Ruminants stand-off feed requirements respected
☐ ASD completed INCLUDING standing-off feed records
☐ Movement of cattle and deer are recorded in NAIT
