Cattle Supply Chain – Feedlot

Live export depots, also commonly known as quarantine facilities, are an essential link in the exporting supply chain. Depots, are where livestock are checked over to ensure their health and well-being prior to being loaded onto livestock vessels.

 

Livestock are handled quietly and calmly throughout the animal’s transition from on-farm through to vessel loading, as this reduces stress from environmental change and aids each individual animal’s adaption to their new surroundings.
