There are several important factors in preparing to ship livestock,
not the least of which is ensuring that they arrive at their
destination healthy and alive. Needless to say, you’ll also want
them to be delivered as quickly and inexpensively as possible.
Here are some important factors to consider, as well as important
questions to ask before choosing a transport provider:
Tips on How to Transport Livestock
* Reducing stress is of major importance in the delivery of healthy
animals. The truck or trailer should have non-slip floors to
reduce the chances of the animal being injured or injuring other
* Ask about how the container is temperature controlled to reduce
the risk of animals overheating.
* Adequate food and water must be provided.
* Does the transporter provide adequate ventilation, especially if
there are numerous animals to be transported?
* Does the driver have insurance and what procedures are in place in
case of an accident on the road?
* What is the level of prior experience with transporting livestock?
* Is the truck or trailer insulated against not only inclement
weather but what about excessive noise? Almost all animals will
experience some level of stress when being transported but some
are more sensitive to excessive noise than others.
* Will you need to provide certificates or other important
paperwork? You should also check if the truck has the necessary
permits to transport livestock.
