Today the teams are very busy checking on the many trucks coming from all over Europe into Turkey. We are shocked to find trucks with very young calves on board, and bulls from Estonia! The calves are crying out; such young animals still dependant on milk for nutrition are too fragile to be transported such long distances and over a border where, if blocked, there is no possibility to properly feed them. The Estonian bulls are filthy and have running noses (possible shipping fever?).
At night we type up our reports which will be sent to the EU, FVO, and all pertinent Member State authorities.
