Each EURCAW-Pigs dossier addresses the following items: \"Legislation\", \"Welfare indicators\", \"Knowledge\", \"Inspiring examples\" and \"Training courses\". This dossier is based on EURCAW-Pigs’ “Review of fitness for transport of pigs<\/a>”. Two<\/ins> key focus areas during inspections of fitness for transport can be distinguished, based on their central roles in the description of fitness for transport in Council Regulation (EC 1/2005). Animals that should not be considered fit for transport are those: (1) presenting signs of pathological processes and (2) having physiological weaknesses.<\/p>

Transporting cull sows to the abattoir includes specific welfare risks that are associated e.g. with the higher weight (> 250 kg) and reduced fitness associated with the reasons for culling. For this purpose, a specific knowledge section is added to the dossier. This is based on the corresponding \"Review of transport of sows<\/a>\" developed by EURCAW-Pigs.<\/p>
