MEPs urge EU states to ensure better care of transported animals

A few  highlights:

·        Encouragement to transport embryos and semen over live animals

·        Preference to slaughter animals at origin and thus transport carcasses rather than live animals

·        Enforcement of current regulations

·        24-h rest periods

·        Transportation logs, audit and enforcement. Encouragement to adopt live-tracking technology for the ability to track and monitor transport conditions live (I imagine this could be expensive especially for food animal producers, as opposed to exhibition or competition animals that are a little more lucrative in terms of trade profits).
