Schmid, Otto and Ziegler, Katia (2005) Transport of livestock, before slaughter - CH Regulation/Ordinance 2005. [Organic rules - Differences between other regulations/standards and EEC No 2092/91]
Full text not available from this repository.
Transport should be careful and with respect: Stress, fear and pain should be avoided as much as possible. Transport may not last longer than 6 hours (Swiss animal law, Sept. 2005)
Swiss Ordinance limits the duration of transport to not more than 6 hours. EU Regulation 2092/91 does not specify the maximum duration for transport.
Transport to slaughter is a major stress for the animals, even more so if it is combined with animals from other farms. By restricting its duration to a minimal time, this stress can be reduced.
