Germany | Kassel | Event about Animal Exports to EU Third Countries

We are invited for a speech at an event held by two farmers associations in Germany.

The Kreisbauernverband Kassel e.V. and the Regionalbauernverband Kurhessen e. V. invited us for a speech to an event about animal exports to EU third countries to Kassel. Farmers are unsure which information they can trust and what to believe. The veterinary services are not approving any transports to third countries, the exporters claim there are no welfare problems on the export routes.

In our speech we show animal welfare problems that occur during transport on certain routes and during sea transport. The farmers are shocked. However, eventually it is up to the them to decide whether they can afford not to sell their animals to certain third countries.
