Authored by Colorado State University Professor of Animal Science Temple Grandin, Ph.D., with the Institute's Animal Welfare Committee, the 2010 edition includes an important new transportation audit that measures key animal welfare factors on trucks when they arrive at meat plants and as drivers and plant personnel unload livestock.

The addition of a transportation audit will help us evaluate transportation factors as they impact livestock welfare, Grandin said. By using objective criteria to measure welfare in packing plants since 1999, measurable improvements have been achieved and I believe the new transportation component will help advance welfare even further.
