Animals must be delivered to the slaughterhouse in clean condition in accordance with European hygiene rules. Good coat hygiene helps to make the slaughter process as hygienic as possible. The NVWA strictly monitors the supply of clean animals and hygiene during the slaughter process. To prevent problems during delivery to the slaughterhouse or during slaughtering, it is important that measures are taken where necessary to promote coat hygiene.
