Eyes on Animals spotted a Dutch lorry from the company Busser Benekom. On board were tall Holstein cattle loaded at a cattle market in Belgium (in Brugge). For many of them, they only had 2-4cm of space above their backs! They could not hold their head in a natural position. On top of this, cattle with horns were loaded together with cattle without horns, potentially causing damage to eachother. The conditions for these cattle was unacceptable. We have filed a complaint with the AID about this. We will also share our results with campaign organizations so that the new Dutch rule about providing at least 15 cm of space above the highest point of a bovine indeed be passed and enforced.
