DCWC Webinar: Animal welfare during marketing: A dairy cow's journey from farm to plant
Cull cow welfare continues to be an area that needs focus and improvement within our industry. This talk will discuss current perspectives on cull cow fitness for transport and condition upon arrival at the slaughter facility. Once a cull cow leaves the farm she often has a long journey ahead of her and understanding her trip may help us answer the questions: is fit for transport and does it matter to her?
