Cattle Video Ready, made by Animal Transport Guides Project

The practical EU video for cattle, based on the Guide to Good Practice for the transport of Cattle and four dedicated Fact Sheets, is now available. This video provides practical advice to professionals to ensure that the cattle they transport remain in good welfare. Watch the video now by selecting your language below:










This video has been produced in the framework of a dedicated European project funded by the DG SANTE of the European Commission. Coordinated by a large consortium of research institutes from 10 countries and stakeholders organisations, it includes input from EU agri-food, veterinary, road transport and animal welfare stakeholder groups.


The video provides a practical illustration showing how to deal with the most critical aspects around transport such as loading and unloading, feeding and watering and transportation in hot or cold temperatures. This video supplements the Guides and Fact sheets, which altogether constitute an invaluable source of information for all involved in the transport of livestock.


Animal transport without respect for animal welfare is in nobody’s interest as it could lead to the sickness or death of animals, sanctions, financial losses and the withdrawal of the driver’s license and/or authorisation to transport such animals.

Videos for sheep, horses and poultry will be available soon. 


More information on the creation process and development of the videos can be found at the Animal Transport Guides website ( Updates in the project can be followed by subscribing to the Animal Transport Guides newsletter (link to subscribe).
