Is road transport stressful for the sheep?

Once sheep are yarded on the farm, the weights are then used to calculate the space required for trucking the sheep. Each deck of the truck is carefully loaded and gates closed. This prevents sheep from over-crowding and provides a safe transport environment. Too loose and too tight is not ideal, the truck driver carefully prepares and plans his loads in line with the road transport guidelines to ensure every animal is delivered in good condition.
