12/06/2019: Unfit livestock evidence needed
Members are being urged to contact MPI and the Road Transport Forum if they have an issue with rejecting an unfit animal for transport. Chairman of The National Livestock Transport and Safety Group (NLT&SG), Don Wilson, says if operators cart an unfit animal, they can be infringed for that. “As an industry that has a vested interest in improving animal welfare issues, we should do all we can to address and improve those outcomes. “MPI has a hotline that concerned carriers can use and I implore livestock transporters to use that in the first instance, followed up by an email to Mark Ngatuere, the Road Transport Forum’s manager of policy, safety, and training. “Mark will collate that and forward to MPI under anonymity and confidentiality for the person or persons forwarding it.”
What Mark needs is:
- Legitimate cases
- If you reject an animal for transport please forward information to Mark
- State the reason for rejection
- The date the animal or animals were rejected
- The animal’s location or the farm and the farmer’s name
- Whether that same animal has been re-presented later and still unfit for transport
- Examples where there have been issues identified with livestock you have carted that are not a direct result of you mishandling or ill-treating them.
