Slaughter of Livestock – keeping it close to home
01 April 2021
Liz Wright would like to tell Guild members about a free-to-attend webinar being hosted by the Humane Slaughter Association (HSA) at 3pm on Wednesday 28 April at 3pm. The webinar will highlight the current decline in the network of small to medium-sized multi-species abattoirs and discuss how a reliable supply of locally-produced meat can be achieved practically, while maintaining and improving high standards of animal welfare. Potential solutions include the establishment of new local abattoirs and pop-up or mobile slaughter facilities, which can be relocated to meet demand. Details of recent developments of mobile slaughter units in the Netherlands will be included in the presentations.
The webinar is specially aimed at those associated with the rearing and marketing of home-produced meat, including small producers and smallholders.
