Hässig, M; Tschuor, A C; Jud, F; Spiess, Bernhard; Schmidt, R (2011). Schlachtkälbertransporte in der Schweiz. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 153(7):330-334.

Abstract

The analysis and optimization of transportation routes of calves to slaughterhouses by means of a GIS (geographical information system) route planning and time limitation software for the fleet management in transportation industry was performed. As basic data the farms (last locations of the calves) and the slaughterhouses were available in each case with addresses and coordinates. 150 data records from 258 veal calves could be evaluated. None of the calves was transported longer than 6 hours. Therefore, in all cases the Swiss law for animal protection was obeyed concerning maximum length of transportation time. In the road model, 82% of calves were transported too far.
